FRIENDLY faces may well greet Cirencester Town on their first-ever visit to Evesham United's Jubilee Stadium tomorrow.

If snow and ice clear from the ground, a number of former Centurions will be in action against their former club.

As many as four players to have worn the red and black of Cirencester will lineup in the red and white of Evesham.

Former club captain Matt Sysum was the latest Centurion to make the move north, swapping Cirencester for Evesham earlier this season.

He joins full-back Jared Wilson and strike duo Marcus Palmer and Carl Brown in the opposition ranks.

Nine-goal striker Brown started the season at Bishop's Cleeve but switched to Evesham shortly before Christmas.
