Newly-promoted Biggleswade FC travel to Northwood Park this Saturday to take on London Tigers.

The burgeoning, young club lifted the Spartan South Midlands League Division One title last season and adapted seamlessly to the tougher environs of the Premier Division- winning six of their opening seven matches.

Their cup form has remained encouraging- they beat Harefield United 3-2 in the League Challenge Trophy in midweek – but the Waders are winless in their last three league outings, with defeat to league leaders Berkhamsted completing a trio of frustrating results.

Dave Northfield’s men headed into that contest a place behind their visitors at the summit and raced into a 2-0 lead, courtesy of strikes from George Riley and former Biggleswade United forward Tom Cookman. The Comrades displayed the hallmarks of potential champions to win 3-2 at The Carlsberg Stadium to compound defeat to Hoddesdon Town and a subsequent draw with Tring Athletic for Biggleswade.

However, they certainly haven’t been outclassed in those game and the explosive first-half performance against a quality Berkhamsted side was symptomatic of the progress this youthful team has made in their 17-month existence.

And a visit to London Tigers, who consistently languish in the lower reaches of the table, presents an ideal opportunity to return to winning ways in the league.
