AFTER their second weekend off in the space of a month, Buntingford Town will return to action on Saturday (October 28) when Hatfield Town are the visitors in the Herts Senior Trophy first round.
The two sides met in a top-of-the table clash in September, when Will Turl's 88th minute strike gave Buntingford the points.
But one player boss Paul Attfield will not be able to call upon is reserve and youth team goalkeeper Jordan McGarvey.
The 15-year-old has signed a one-year contract with Luton Town after impressing during a series of trial games for the Championship side.
He impressed enough to be given a game against Peterborough under-16s in a 1-1 draw, and also played in a 1-0 win over St Albans under-17A.
He was then given a further six-week trial as the U16s keeper, playing against QPR in a 0-0 draw, and then in a 2-1 win over Wycombe Wanderers.

The Hatters were so impressed they signed him with five weeks of his trial still remaining.
Town boss Paul Attfield said: "It's good for the club that we can produce players who can play at that level."
"Our youth set-up has reached the point where we can do that, and there's two or three others who may go before the end of the season.
"I'm sure that Jordan will get another contract at the end of the season. He's already in their under-18s, and I hope it works out for him.
