Horncastle based AFC Harpars return to action in the Lincoln Sunday League tomorrow looking to regain top spot in the battle for the Division Two title.

With Harpars out of action recently, Trent Valley and Burton Amateurs have gone ahead of them in the leading positions.

However, Harpars are the only one of the three sides in league action tomorrow as they host struggling Golden Eagle.

A victory could take Harpars back to top spot and they will start as favourites against opponents who have won just once this term.

In Division One, Woodhall Spa United will be aiming to hit the goal trail again when they travel to Saxilby Athletic.

Woodhall demolished local rivals Wragby last Sunday but could find second placed Saxilby a much tougher proposition, especially on their own ground.

Wragby are also in action tomorrow when they visit Rustons United in the second round of the Ron Eaglen Trophy.

Having picked up their first point of the campaign last Sunday, Bardney will be looking for another positive result at Division Four rivals Birchwood United Reserves while Horncastle Town’s Development Squad travel to William Fosters Reserves in Division Five.

An impressive run of form has seen Town move into third place in the table, just behind early pacesetters Seahawks and Shakespeare Athletic.
