Both Leiston and Needham Market kicked-off their new seasons in the Eko-Stik Southern League Premier Central with impressive victories on Saturday, and they will be looking to maintain their good starts tomorrow evening.

Fresh from a 2-0 home win over Coalville Town, Glenn Driver’s LEISTON travel to Royston Town tonight. Christy Finch and Chris Henderson were both on target against Coalville.

Royston, nicknamed the Crows, began their campaign with a goalless draw at Alvechurch.

Likewise, Richard Wilkins’ NEEDHAM MARKET, who thumped Bedworth United 4-0 away on Saturday, will be gunning for a further three points at home to Hitchin Town.

Summer recruit Joe Marsden netted a brace against Bedworth, after Keiran Morphew had broken the deadlock. There was also an own goal from home defender Delroy Gordon.
