BUNTINGFORD play Whitewebbs on Saturday - the team they lost out to for last year's title in ­controversial fashion.

Whitewebbs were awarded the Herts Senior County League Championship last season instead of ­Buntingford, after Town, who had been originally crowned champions, were docked six points for ­fielding an ineligible player.

Chairman Richard Daly said: "We've played them many times over the years, and you know you'll always get a tough match when you go there."

Both teams have started the season well, and Town sit ­second in the table, thanks to a four-game ­winning run.

Daly expects Whitewebbs, who trail Buntingford only on goal difference, will be one of the teams to beat again this year.

He said: "Whitewebbs have been at the top level of Herts County football for the last few years, and I don't expect this season to be any ­different.

But we've started well, and we're confident we can get a result.

"I'm sure they feel the same, so it should be a keenly-fought match.
