Sorry for the delay in posting, tonight (20th) the First Team make the short journey to Latimer Park as they look to do the double over Burton Park.

Getting to Latimer Park, Burton Latimer: Take the Junction off the A14 signposted "Burton Latimer/Bedford" and follow signs for the town. Upon entering Burton turn right at the Versalift Roundabout, go straight over the next one and then turn right at the third roundabout close to the Morrisons warehouse. Follow the road around Morrisons premises and then turn left when you see the sign for Burton Park.

About Burton: BPW were formed in 1961 as Kettering Park Wanderers by Roger "Bo" Patrick. The club initially played their matches at the Rockingham Road Pleasure Park in Kettering (hence their original name) and later moved to another pitch in that town down Pytchley Road. In 1973 they relocated to Burton Latimer and changed their name to reflect the move. The club originally played in the Kettering & District Amateur League (alongside Corinths for a good period) but moved up into the United Counties League in 73'. In 1989 they secured promotion to the Premier Division after securing runners-up spot in Division One but their time in the top flight was to last just two years before they suffered relegation back to Division One in 1991 where they have remained ever since.

Their Season thus far: Burton Park go into tonight's game sitting 18th in the Division One table. Of their 24 games played to date they have won 2, drawn 4 and lost 18. This leaves them with just ten points to their name and a goal difference of -56. At the weekend Burton made the tough trip to Peterborough Sports and predictably they lost, losing 3-0 to the high flyers. Their last home game took place on Boxing Day when they lost 2-1 to Thrapston.

Burton's home record this season
Bourne Town- Lost 0-1
Bugbrooke St Michaels- Lost 1-4
Lutterworth Athletic- Lost 0-9
Northampton Spencer- Lost 1-2
Olney Town- Lost 0-3
Peterborough Sports- Lost 0-5
Potton United- Lost 0-4
St Neots Town Youth & Saints- Lost 1-2
Thrapston Town- Lost 1-2
Wellingborough Whitworth- Lost 0-8

Previous Meetings with BPW: We have met Burton on a total of 33 occasions; winning 18, drawing 7 and losing 7. All of those past encounters bar one were UCL Division One fixtures, the exception being a UCL Knock-Out Cup Preliminary Round tie in 2012 which Corinths won 2-0. We had mixed fortunes against Burton last season; losing 4-0 at Sergeants Lawn with Wanderers on loan striker Alfie Taylor scoring all of the goals but we gained revenge in the return fixture at Latimer Park, winning 1-0 thanks to a Sam Johnson penalty as the Corinthians ended the campaign on a high.
