ROYSTON boss Paul Attfield has arranged a friendly away to Rushden and Hingham United of the United Counties League tomorrow (Saturday).
The move came as Royston were not allocated another fixture by the Spartan South Midlands League after their arranged game against Cranfield United was brought forward to Tuesday, and was then cancelled altogether.
The lack of a first team fixture irritated Attfield, whose team could be faced with a fixture pile-up come the end of the season.
They have played three fewer league games than their nearest rival, second-placed Kings Langley, and are still involved in four cups.
