Wellingborough Town boss Jamie Wright reckons his only problem is that he’s got too many good players!

The Doughboys continue their pre-season preparations when they welcome Hawell Town to the Dog & Duck tomorrow (Saturday) having lost at home to a young Northampton Town side in midweek.

The Cobblers snatched a 2-1 win in the dying moments after Ryan Ansell had put Wellingborough ahead.

Wright says his team is coming together nicely and added: “The problem I’ve got is that we have 20 players signed on and they are all good enough to play in the first team.

“We just need everyone to play as much as they can in pre season so we can have a look at them and make some decisions.”

The Doughboys kicked off their pre-season by thumping ON Chenecks 4-1 before they met the Cobblers at the Dog and Duck.

Wright said: “It’s all coming together nicely. I feel we are progressing with each game and the team are bonding.

“We are where I wanted us to be at this stage.”

Tomorrow’s visitors Hanwell play in the Evo-Stik Southern League Division One Central.

And Wright said: “They are from the league above and it’s another good challenge for us.”

Rothwell Corinthians will kick off the new ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division on home soil.

Corinthians, back in the top flight for the first time since 2010-2011 after finishing as runners-up in Division One last season, will face Huntingdon Town at Sergeants Lawn on Saturday, August 8.

The Cromwellians finished last season 16th in the table.

Wellingborough and Desborough Town also start with home fixtures.

The Doughboys host Leicester Nirvana at the Dog & Duck and Ar Tarn entertain Holbeach United at the Waterworks Field.
