The weekend’s action in the Nottinghamshire Senior League gets underway on Friday night with the Division One encounter between Bridgford United and Ravenshead at Hollinwood Lane. Bridgford will be looking to back up their win from last weekend in their first season at this level. It’s Ravenshead’s opening match; they have made several new signings over the summer and debuts could be handed to as many as six players. Steven Shuttleworth, Joshua Broad, Joe Maguire, Martin McDonagh, Brent Horton and Liam Walton push for a start, whilst 16 year-old Jamie Vaughan is also looking to make his debut after impressing in the Reserves last Saturday.
On Saturday in the Premier Division, Cotgrave go in search of their third win in three as Aslockton & Orston kick off their season by visiting Woodview. Also looking for three from three are Awsworth Villa who welcome Wollaton to The Shilo.
Stapleford Town will be producing their first ever programme for their inaugural home match since promotion to the Premier Division. All the proceeds will be given to charity with Attenborough the visitors to Greenwich Avenue.
Keyworth United opened with a resounding win but were brought back down to earth by Cotgrave in midweek. They will look to bounce back against unbeaten FC Cavaliers at The Forest, while Eastwood CFC Development travel to Roko to face Magdala Amateurs.
Bilborough Town are trying to get off the mark at the third attempt as they head to Wharf Lane to play Radcliffe Olympic.
In Division One, Woodthorpe Park Rangers will attempt to follow up their impressive win on the opening weekend as Beeston visit Eagle Valley.
In selected other fixtures, Basford United Community entertain Ruddington Village at Greenwich Avenue, Burton Joyce host Mansfield Hosiery Mills at The Poplars and Kirton Brickworks welcome Wollaton Reserves to Station Road.
