Poppies to face The Eagles at The Eyrie.

The Poppies will face the Southern League Div One Central side at The Eyrie, home to Bedford Town FC, on Saturday 15th July (kick-off 3pm).

This friendly is the second in our summer schedule and another test for Andy Leese’s side, who started the pre-season campaign with a strong 0-2 win at Newport Pagnell Town.

Chalfont St Peter also suffered the same fate on Tuesday night as Bedford Town cruised to a 2-0 home win.


Limited Twitter updates will be available via @KTFCOfficial throughout the afternoon.
