Match preview

By Alexander Moloney

Yaxley FC are based in Yaxley, near Peterborough, in Cambridgeshire and are nicknamed the Cuckoos. The club was founded in 1962 and joined Division Three South of the Peterborough & District League. In 1963 they were renamed Yaxley British Legion, and in 1965 were promoted to Division Two. They won Division Two in 1970–71, were promoted to Division One and the following year dropped British Legion from their name.

In 1986 they were renamed Coalite Yaxley as part of a sponsorship deal, and a further change of sponsor in 1990 saw the club renamed Clarksteel Yaxley. In 1995 they moved to a new ground, In2itive Park, Leading Drove, Holme Road, and their current stadium holds 1500 supporters.

Yaxley’s home kit is Navy Blue & Orange shirts, Navy Blue shorts, and Navy Blue & Orange socks, and their away kit is Orange & Navy shirts, Orange shorts and Orange & Navy socks.

Yaxley have won one of their last 5 league games so will sure to be up for the fight in this one, but Sutton, unbeaten in 6 games now will feel the force is with them to get a result here. Momentum is everything and Sutton are on a roll now with a defence that’s as good as anyone’s’ in this league. Firepower maybe Suttons issue with Nadat and Brown gone so its time to find another hero up front.

Let’s keep the wagon rolling and get a much needed 3 points in the league.

Here’s to an entertaining and successful game.

COME ON YOU ROYALS.
