League & Cup Fixtures 2018
2018 League and Cup Fixtures have now been added to the website
Some points to note:-
The Yorkshire Show is 10-12 July so free week Wednesday 11th
In Division 2 Harrogate have 3 dates they can't play at home I have avoided two but flipping the 3rd fixture on 1st August will mean Follifoot would have 3 home in a row first half and then 3 away in a row fixtures on the reverse half, they can either arrange to play on an alternative ground or Harrogate can give up home advantage and play both fixtures at Follifoot
In Division 4 Corinthians home matches are to be played at Whixley CC this year
In Division 5 fixtures this year have been a bit awkward, unfortunately some teams may have 3 home or away games in a row at some time during the season, however there will be 15 games in total teams playing each other 3 times (twice home/ once away or once home/ twice away).
15 Matches means that one match will have to be mutually arranged to be played on any agreeable date before the 8th August, just let me know when you have arranged to play and let me have the result as usual
Cup final venues have yet to be confirmed, I will update when I have the info.
Cheers, any problems you know where I am, otherwise have a good season
Win in style, lose with pride, respect the game, enjoy yourselves!!
