Wymondham travel to Stowmarket with high hopes this weekend.

On current form the home team should present the league leaders with few problems.

However the visitors will be cautious. as the Suffolk club's links with a local army base make their form hard to predict. They currently sit in ninth place in Eastern Counties One, but grabbed a valuable away win last week against neighbours Woodbridge.

Wymondham have problems of their own, with influential backs Nick Greenhall and Pena Sokia both out with injuries. However this will present young up and coming fly half Stuart Lyle and new recruit Alex Brugger the opportunity to start.

The pack remains unchanged, but on the bench Colin Sykes and Josh Reeve will be joined by replacement hooker Mark Unstead, following some impressive performances for the seconds.

The Murderer's Arms landlord Ivan Brown and Director of Rugby Andy Lyle have unveiled sponsorship for a new first team player of the month award. Mobile young prop Lee Summers was named as the inaugural 'Murderer of the month' for September and was presented with a voucher for a meal for two.
