Craig Adams is the new manager of Wellingborough Town following the resignation of Phil Adams.

Adams, who was Mason’s assistant, takes over a struggling side who are currently one place off the foot of the UCL Premier Division.

The Doughboys are without a win in six and last claimed three points on October 13 when they beat Harborough Town 2-0.

Adams’ first task will be to prepare his side to face fourth-place Spalding at the Dog & Duck on Saturday.

Elsewhere in the top flight, S&L Corby manager Daren Young is hoping that his young side can claim a first win in eight when they travel to AFC Kempston.

He said: “Recently we picked up two very good points against Deeping and Quorn.

“Everyone is beating everyone else in the league and we know that if we can keep creating chances then we can start picking up some points.”

Irchester are also in action as they make the short trip to face Cogenhoe United at Compton Park.

In Division One, Raunds have a challenge ahead of them as they visit leaders Sileby Rangers.

And their boss Russ Baxter thinks it will be a good measure of where his men are at.

He said: “I class them as one of the teams who will be there or thereabouts at the end of the season.

“It will definitely be a good gauge of how we’re doing and we need to turn up with our game and see where that gets us.

Whitworth will seek to bounce back from last week’s defeat at ON Chenecks when they travel to Potton.

In the third round of the NFA Junior Cup, Thrapston visit Peterborough outfit ICA Sports, Rothwell Corinthians host Combination side Milton and Burton Park Wanderers host Rushden & Higham.
