The Ebac Northern League has announced the fixtures for next season at the Annual General Meeting being held this morning. Despite Guisborough Town appealing to the FA against the decision to relegate the Club to the Second Division the League has proceeded to publish the full fixture list for both Divisions.
As the season commences with the FA Cup extra preliminary round on Saturday 5th August and the draw is not published until 7th July the League fixtures start week commencing 6th August.
We play our first two fixtures away at Jarrow Roofing on Tuesday 8th August and at Newcastle Benfield on Saturday 12th August.
The following week we play our first two home fixtures of the season with Ashington visiting Heritage Park on Wednesday (our new mid week home day) 16th August and Newton Aycliffe on Saturday 19th. With Slimming World moving to a Tuesday we can now hold games on Mondays and so we have a game on Bank Holiday Monday, 28th August, when we host Penrith at HP.
The first of the newly promoted teams visit HP on Saturday 16th September with the game Team Northumbria.
We have a home fixture on the Saturday before Christmas with a game against Seaham Red Star but on Boxing Day (Tuesday 26th December) we have a trip to Penrith.
If all goes according to plan with fixtures then the League season ends on Saturday 21st April with a home game against Sunderland RCA.
