A weekend of sport to be had in MK

With MK Dons taking a break from Championship duty with the international break, there’s still plenty of sport to get your teeth into this weekend.

If it’s football you’re after, Newport Pagnell Town are hosting AFC Kempston in the first round of the FA Vase. The game at Willen Road kicks off at 3pm.

If you’re looking for a more relaxed afternoon, Stony Stratford Cricket Club are battling for their Northants Premier Division lives, and will take on Oundle Town at Campbell Park from 11:30am.

There’s also the fast-paced Italian Grand Prix this weekend, with Red Bull Racing’s Daniil Kvyat and Daniel Ricciardo vying for position at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza. Both drivers are likely to take engine changes ahead of qualifying, so look to them to race through the field come Sunday’s race.

And as if that wasn’t enough, MK Lightning return to the rink on Saturday as they take on Peterborough Phantoms in the first match of their annual Ashes series. Face-off at the Milton Keynes Arena is at 7pm on Saturday night.
