For the first time in the Club’s history we will be entering a side into the Central League!

Formed in 1911, it is the oldest reserve league in England and in 2014-15 expanded to become a national competition.

Our Central League fixtures for 2020-21 are as follows:

Grimsby Town (H) – Wednesday 23rd September (13:00)
Walsall (A) – Tuesday 6th October (14:00)
Scunthorpe United (H) – Wednesday 4th November (13:00)
Huddersfield Town (A) –  Wednesday 18th November (13:00)
Walsall (H) – Wednesday 6th January (13:00)
Grimsby Town (A) – Wednesday 13th January (13:00)
Scunthorpe United (A) – Tuesday 19th January (14:00)
Huddersfield Town (H) – Wednesday 3rd February (13:00)

We will endeavour to provide some level of coverage of these games, particularly while they are played behind closed doors.


Since we introduced the Development Squad of 2020-21, Alex Doyle has signed an additional year at the Club! Alex has been with us since 2017 when he joined the first Academy cohort, and last season was the first Academy player to play in the Football League when he came on against Cheltenham Town in September 2019.
