STRATFORD Town return to action on Saturday when they welcome Guildford City to the DCS Stadium in a 3pm kick-off.
Town had a blank Saturday last weekend, which was reserved for FA Trophy games, but can now resume their inaugural Calor Southern League campaign against fellow Division One South & West newcomers Guildford.
The Surrey club were one of the teams transferred from Division One Central this season as the league reorganised the divisions following the various promotion and relegation issues.
Guildford have had a stuttering start to life in their new division and have won just two games so far. They lie third from bottom with seven points, five behind Town who are in 12th place.
The match is the first of two successive home games for Carl Adams’ side who entertain Bishops Cleeve the following week. Next Tuesday’s rearranged game at home to Clevedon Town has had to be postponed after the Somerset club’s Red Insure League Cup tie against Tiverton Town was postponed this week and will now take place next Tuesday. The Clevedon game will now be played on Tuesday 3rd December.
Adams took a step towards addressing Stratford’s defensive problems by signing Bedworth United goalkeeper Andy Kemp this week. The 25-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best keepers in the Southern League. Bedworth centre-back Callum Burgess has also made the switch to Stratford.
But on the downside, influential midfielder Joe Halsall has left Town to join Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division side Barwell.
