The Mighty K's of Knebworth face a really tough game at the weekend in the Hertfordshire Senior County Premier Division when they welcome Belstone FC to The Recreation Ground.

Less than a month ago on Saturday 2nd November they visited Belstone's Medburn Ground and ended up on the wrong end of a 12-0 hammering from the home team whom are currently in second place in the Hertfordshire Senior County League Premier Division.

Since then Belstone have won 3-2 at Bushey Sports Club and beat The 61 FC 3-1 in the Anagram Records Trophy last weekend. They have only lost once in ten league games so far which was 4-5 against Bush Hill Rangers.

Knebworth have lost narrowly to Letchworth Garden City Eagles 3-4, drawn with Cuffley 2-2 and last weekend lost at third placed Standon and Puckeridge 5-1. They are also on the lookout for a new manager following the recent departure of Chris Benton.

The following is taken from and details the information on the current first team vacancy. It shows what a busy job managers have even at this level of football.
