Farnborough commence the new Evo-Stik League South Premier Season this Saturday at the Premier Plus Stadium against St Neots Town.
Looking to build on last Seasons success, Farnborough begin life back at Step 3 with a tricky test at St Neots Town this weekend.
Spencer Day’s side recovered from a two-goal deficit to rescue a draw (3-3) in a Pre-Season Friendly at Molesey on Tuesday evening, courtesy of late goals from Matt Bunyan and Connor Calcutt.
Boro’ have scored 19 goals over the course of Pre-Season, with the following players all finding the net: Perry Coles (4), Jamie Cureton (3), Connor Calcutt (3), Nic Ciardini (2), Jack Smith (2), Patrik Ruzicka, Ainsley Everett, John Oyenuga, Matt Bunyan and a trialist.
Speaking after Thursday’s training session, Manager Spencer Day said: “Everyone at the club are excited that the competitive action is about to start.
“St Neots away is certainly a tough challenge and they have had an excellent pre-season. We’ve had a horrible last week with injuries but it’s time to band together again and get a result.
“The last 18 months have been excellent overall, we have good momentum and I just want the team to go out and give it everything.”
Farnborough last time out (vs Molesey): Luke Cairney (gk), CJ Fearn (Capt), Nick Hutchings, Chris Regis, Jack Saville, Josh Huggins, Matt Bunyan, Kieron Forbes, Jamie Cureton, Perry Coles, Connor Calcutt, Nic Ciardini; Jack Barton. Ainsley Everett. Ethan Allen, Trialist and Liam Stone (gk).

Directions to The Premier Plus Stadium
The quickest way to walk to the ground from the town centre is to head to the Railway Station and use the new Overbridge which is situated at the far end of the ticket office building. For those who can’t navigate a lot of steps, the structure houses a lift on both sides allowing swift acess to the bridge itself. Using this bridge will take you across the track and within 100 yards of the Rowley Park Stadium which you will see to your left, immediately behind the Tesco and other small retail outlets. After crossing and exitting the bridge and the Railway Station complex, follow the footpath towards Kester Way and you will see The Stadium right in front of you.
St Neots train station is on the main Kings Cross to Peterborough First Capital Connect line. Trains leave Kings Cross at 23 minutes past each hour and take about 45 minutes to St Neots. Return trains are at 06 minutes past every hour (confirm before starting your journey).
There is limited parking available within the Stadium complex which is on a first come basis (restricted parking will be implemented at certain games). We have an overflow car park courtesy of the nearby school and there is also street parking available. (Please respect the residents when street parking).
There is also plenty of parking available at the Railway Station which is accessable via the overbridge. Parking here costs £2.00 for 24 hours at the weekend and is by far the safest place to park around the Ground as 24 hour surveillance is in operation.
From the A1 take the A428 signposted Cambridge and continue on the A428. You will see a Tesco on your left hand side, at the first roundabout keep on the A428 to the next roundabout and take the first exit on to B1428 Follow to the second roundabout and turn right into Dramsell Rise. Continue right to the top of that road and enter Kester Way. The Ground is then in front of you.
