This is the first league meeting between the two clubs since 1950. At that time the Waders were called simply Biggleswade, adding the "Town" suffix in the 1950s. The fact that we will also meet the recently formed Biggleswade FC in the league this season is a small complication that we can ignore for the time being.

Those league games after the war did not go well for us and we were probably grateful that the Waders left the Spartan League for the United Counties League in 1951. We have met four times in the East Anglian Cup since then and one of those games ended with our best win against them, 8-1 at Buryfield. Our most recent meeting was in the 2019/20 FA Cup and resulted in a 2-1 away win for us.

At the time the Waders were in the premier division but they were relegated at the end of last season finishing second from bottom. They'll be looking to erase the memories of that frustrating season with a powerful assault on the division one table this time round so our chances of gaining only our second league win over them will be given a testing.
