The pitch at Stamford AFC’s new stadium will be used for the first time in a youth game this Friday.

The Daniels’ under-18s will play local rivals Blackstones FC at the Zeeco Stadium in Ryhall Road at 7.45pm.

Entry to spectators will be free and the club hopes to offer fans a chance to experience the new ground and Borderville complex for the first time and choose their favourite viewing position ahead of the first team’s debut match there against Nantwich Town on December 13.

All volunteers and match day staff will be working to help the club gauge how to manage match day activity. The Daniels larder and function room will be open with BT Sport streamed live from the bar area. Stamford Referees Association, which is based at Borderville, has organised four officials for the match.
