The 2011 Rushden took on Daventry Town in the Northants Senior Youth League at Kiln Park, Raunds on Friday night (25th August)

The club's technical director Steve Whitney, said: “I thought after all the years I have been involved as a player, manager and coach etc., that I had seen most things. But even a crusty old bloke like me is really, really excited about tonight!

“The lads involved in setting the club up who, remember, just a few weeks ago were simply young fans who stood on the terraces supporting their beloved Rushden & Diamonds, have worked terrifically hard and although still very naïve in the ways of running a football club, have overcome that with sheer enthusiam and endeavor.

“They deserve a great night.”

The club are also delighted to announce that the shirt sponsors for the season 2011/12 are Playfish - an EA Sports-owned company.
