Belper face Gladiators test

BELPER Town conclude their pre-season warm up games when local derby neighbours Matlock Town make the short trip to Christchurch Meadow on Saturday.

Kick-off against the Gladiators is 3pm.

It will be a last chance for the Nailers players to convince manager Tommy Taylor they are good enough for a starting shirt in the first Evo-Stik First Division South league game of the season on Saturday, August 13.

Belper travel to take on Newcastle Town in the season’s opener before a first home game on Tuesday, August 16 against Brigg Town.
