PRE-SEASON activities are already underway for St Peter's FC.

The Saints started training on Tuesday (June 30) evening at Francis Bacon School playing fields, Drakes Drive, St Albans, with Saturday sessions at the school due to commence this Saturday (July 4) at 2pm.

Friendly fixtures are at present being arranged before the season proper in the Herts Senior County League Division One gets underway on Saturday, August 15.

Serious doubts hindered the future of the Saints at one point, but they have decided to give it another go despite last season's big problems.
