Boss Mark Simmonds will be hoping his Horncastle Town Development Squad can make a flying start to the year when they entertain Newtoft Terriers in the Lincoln Sunday League tomorrow at The Wong (ko: 10.45).

Town only joined the competition this season and Simmons and assistant Alan Wilkinson have been delighted with the progress made by a largely inexperienced side.

A win tomorrow would step up Town’s challenge for a top four place in Division Five.

Woodhall Spa United and Wragby FC both face testing First Division fixtures.

Woodhall entertain Travellers Rest while stuttering Wragby will be looking to kick-start their campaign at home to Plough Sturton.

Title chasing AFC Harpars don’t have a fixture in Division Two but arch rivals Trent Valley face the University of Lincoln Thirds.
