Rushden & Higham United 0 Olney Town 0
Saturday, 18 August 2007
A new era for merged club Rushden & Higham kicked off at Hayden Road but a win proved elusive on the return of UCL football to the ground following a long absence.
After an impressive pre-season build up the Nurserymen were geared up to play party poopers and they returned south with a share of the spoils.
Both sides played tidy football in midfield but lacked a cutting edge in front of goal.
Rushden & Higham: Phil Turner, Dave Townsend, Craig Harrower, Tom Woods, Wayne Abbott, Lee Howard, Matt Peacock, Steve Ainge, Kris Hall (Craig Thurlow), Karl King (Gary Broadway), Martin Mitchell (Dave Toyer).
Olney: Andrew Greenway, Scott Wrighting, Andy Mason, Adam Risby, Guy Stewart, Jamie Harris, Ian Lindop, Ian King, Jason Cole, Richard Beevis (Steve Foster), Dominic Inggall (Paul Fisher).
