Midfielder Andy Todd is set to have a second run-out in a Tamworth shirt in tonight's friendly with Walsall as he waits to hear whether he will make a dream move to professional football.
The right winger, who helped Hucknall Town to the FA Trophy final last season, has spent pre-season on trial with League One side Oldham Athletic and is waiting to discover whether they will offer him a contract.
But the 25-year-old free agent had a run-out with Burton Albion last week, and linked up with Tamworth on Saturday to feature in their 1-0 defeat to Northampton Town.
Trialist goalkeeper Alex Bacherini caught the eye with three top-notch saves to deny Eoin Jess, Eric Sabin and Scott McGleish but he had no chance with the Cobblers' 72nd-minute winner.
Former Scotland international Jess unleashed a decent right-footer from the edge of the area but the ball flicked off Todd's boot to loop over the wrong-footed ex-Nottingham Forest keeper.
Summer recruit Steve Farmer grabbed Halesowen Town's winner to send former club Nuneaton Borough to their first pre-season defeat.
The defender grabbed the only goal of Saturday's friendly at The Grove, heading home a deep cross from Nathan Lamey on 72 minutes.
Nuneaton had dominated the opening half, with David Staff firing a free-kick wide, while they almost levelled late on, only for David Blenkinsopp to hit the bar and ex-Yeltz midfielder Andy Spencer stabbed the rebound wide.
Grant Pinkney completed Evesham United's 2-1 comeback win at Leamington.
Andy Gregory rifled home a tenth minute opener for the hosts, but Richard Ball levelled within a minute and then Pinkney slotted home the winner seven minutes after half-time.
Hereford United were denied their first win of preseason when Bristol Rovers snatched two late goals to record a 3-2 scoreline at Edgar Street.
Steve Elliott had given Ian Atkins' visitors the lead but the Bulls moved in front with his new deal with Willenhall Town by bagging their winner in a 1-0 verdict at home to Eastwood Town. The striker was the hero with the winner on 49 minutes, wriggling clear from his markers to hammer home a low drive.
Lee Rollason (8) and summer signing Jason Smith (45) hit the Tipton Town goals to earn a 2-1 victory at Shifnal Town, while Chasetown earned a 1-1 draw at Ilfracombe, with Lee Bullimore notching their equaliser.
