Rainworth MW have a change of opponent and venue for their fixture on Tuesday, 17th July.
Instead of visiting Shirebrook Town on that evening, the Wrens will now host Evo-Stik League Premier Division Basford United, who won Division One South at a canter last season. Kick-off is 7.45pm.
Meanwhile, Wrens boss Ben Marvin has confirmed that the home pre-season fixture against Sherwood Colliery on Saturday, 21st July will still be played, despite Sherwood's late promotion to the East Midlands Counties League following the resignation of Holbrook Sports.
The Wrens report for training on Monday (7pm). Marvin and assistant boss Paul Rockley have been burning the candle at both ends to build an entirely new squad in readiness for their first season in the EMCL.
No names will be revealed until they are officially registered after 1st July, but several players have already committed to the club, with more still to be looked at, and the management are quietly confident of a successful season in their new league.
