The football season kicks off in front of bumper crowds this weekend.

Eight matches will be played over three days during the United Counties League and Peterborough & District League groundhop.

Pinchbeck United will be making history on Friday night with their first-ever game in UCL Division One at Huntingdon Town.

Saturday’s action starts at Carter’s Park as Holbeach United face Sleaford Town in the UCL Premier Division (10.45am kick-off).

Next up at 1.45pm will be Moulton Harrox against newly-promoted Sutton Bridge United in the top flight of the Peterborough League.

At 4.30pm, Spalding Town face Wisbech St Mary Saints in Division Two at Knight Street, Pinchbeck.

It’s a privilege to be part of the groundhop weekend. We’re looking forward to it.
