David Knapp, the Old Boys' player-coach, is one of four former internationals in the line-up to face Cannock but Knapp says the Regional League game against Blandford today has priority.
Cannock also have a crucial League game, at Southgate this afternoon. Knapp said: "We know we are the underdogs by a long, long chalk but we have been training hard, done our homework and are confident. We know we can't give any quarter. However we have our game plan and with a huge slice of luck, who knows?"
The fellow Welsh internationals Jon Rees and Mark Smith and the England Olympian Don Williams, will be in the Old Boys' line-up.
In Orense, Spain, England began the defence of their European Indoor title with a 3-1 win over Slovakia. Scotland, in the same Pool, overcame a two-goal deficit to draw with Lithuania.
In Sydney, England won the second match of their tour against an Australian Senior Youth side.
