Slough Town welcome Merthyr Town to Arbour Park in the EVO-STIK League South Premier on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 15:00) with the Rebels looking to maintain their promotion push after more Cup success on Tuesday evening at Bracknell.
This is the first home match since the passing of ‘Super Kev’ McGoldrick last week. We will be holding a collection to raise funds for his funeral, helping the McGoldrick family at this terrible time. These funds will be added to those already raised through the JustGiving page.
