Defiant Diamonds to play on

Rushden & Diamonds say this Saturday’s game against Beaconsfield will go ahead, despite the Dog and Duck clubhouse being badly damaged by fire.

The changing rooms at the ground, which they share with Wellingborough, are being professionally cleaned and an electrician is going back today to finish repairs.

The club says it would like to place on record its gratitude to the numerous offers of help, from local clubs, supporters and governing bodies.

Saturdays fixture will also include the planned bucket collection for Jack Ashton as previously advised.

On the pitch, Diamonds won 4-0 at ten man Aylesbury in the Southern Division One Central last night.

Meanwhile, Wellingborough say they’ve lost the use of their main way of generating income to keep the club alive, together with club memorabilia collected over the years.

In a statement, they say: “We have also lost our furniture, bar stock, cash register and the facility to hire out to generate income to support our running costs.

“Our club is run by volunteers where we give our time voluntarily to help the running of our community based football club.

“We would welcome any support that can be given to help us get back on our feet, provide the facilities required for our community club and help those in our local community who look to our club as a social outlet.
