Overton United ready for big kick-off
OVERTON United have their traditional tough start to the Hampshire Premier League season with their first eight games away from the Recreation Ground as it is still being used for cricket.
First up this weekend they will travel to Fleetlands and then on Wednesday night they have a trip to Winchester Castle.
The final away game will see them face local rivals AFC Aldermaston on September 4.
Basingstoke and District Saturday side Tron have joined the club and their managers have taken over the reserve side.
Having already won the Dango Cup, manager Titch Bloomfield is upbeat about the season and said: “We have a lot of competition for places with the new players from Tron, which can only be a good thing.
“With the amount of away games we have to start and half of them being in midweek it is good we have a big squad.
“I have been pleased with what I have seen in pre-season and we will see how many points we can collect early on.”
