FNB Priaulx League returns this weekend with quadruple-header

Sport | Published:

NORTH coach William Woodford insists his side are not thinking ahead of themselves as they count down the points needed for a third successive FNB Priaulx League title.

The top tier returns after its hiatus on Friday night at Northfield, when Vale Rec visit the unbeaten defending champions, who are a maximum of 16 points from nine games away from retaining their crown.

However, Woodford will not get complacent.

'I know it is a cliche, but we are taking it one game at a time because there is still work to do in the next few weeks,' he said.

That is one of four games this weekend, with a triple-header on Saturday.

Rangers entertain Bels, while St Martin's travel to UCF Sylvans and across in Alderney, current second-placed side Rovers are thre visitors.

And after nine weeks without a game, Alderney are all systems go from tomorrow as they prepare for next month's Muratti Vase semi-final.

The hiatus for cup action over the last two months has meant that the Ridunians have not been in FNB Priaulx League action since 10 December, when they were edged out 1-0 by North.


So, after a break that has seen them train regularly and allowed them to get their whole squad back up to fitness, Alderney coach Alan Adamson is raring to go.

'After a busy start to the season with the 14 games we have played, it has almost been like having another pre-season in the last few weeks,' he said.

'We have seven league games left and all the games between now and next month are building towards being ready for the match with Jersey on 25 March.

'Hopefully we will be the best prepared Alderney Muratti team ever, but at the same time, we are keen to carry on doing well and picking up results in the league.'
