SportsTALK: The big kick off

The first SportsTALK of August looks forward to the start of the non-league football season on Saturday and a return to competitive action for Maidenhead United, Slough Town and Burnham.

Magpies boss Johnson Hippolyte was in a realistic but optimistic mood ahead of the big kick off when Daniel Darlington caught up with him this week.

He is targeting a top-eight place, but admitted his job could be on the line if his side repeat last season’s form.

Rivals Burnham and Slough will begin the season against each other on Saturday.

Michael Owens chatted to Rebels joint manager Neil Baker about what was in store this weekend and the season ahead
