League Fixtures Announced

The fixtures for the first half of the 2012-13 season of the ChromaSport and Trophies United Counties League Division 1 have been released, along with details of the Easter fixture.

For their historic first game at this level the Diamonds will host Thrapston Town at the Dog and Duck on Saturday August 18th (subject to confirmation). They will then travel to Wootton Blue Cross the following weekend in the first of a run of three away games, before returning to the Dog and Duck for the FA Carlsberg Vase game over the weekend of the 15th September.

Over the Christmas and New Year period Mark Starmer’s side will host near neighbours Wellingborough Whitworth on Boxing Day and then Northampton Spencer will visit the Dog and Duck three days later.

A list of those fixtures that have been published are shown below, which includes the Easter fixture towards the end of the season, and these will be added to the main AFC R&D fixtures page in due course (where you can also find details of the pre-season campaign). All of the fixtures are subject to final confirmation of dates and times.
