Mackerel Men handed opening day trip to Met. Police
The 2017/18 Bostik League Premier Division fixtures were released this morning with Gary Elphick starting his first full year as manager away at Metropolitan Police.
The season get’s underway on Saturday 12th August when the Mackerel Men make the trip to Imber Court before our first home game of the season takes place on Tuesday 15th August when Leatherhead are the visitors.
After further matches against Lowestoft and newly promoted Thurrock we’ll travel to local rivals Burgess Hill Town on August Bank Holiday Monday (28/8) before once again facing off with the Hillians on Boxing Day in the return fixture at Woodside Road.
Other notable fixtures include a New Years Day meeting with Merstham, giving summer signings Shaney Samuels, Antone Douglas and Omar Folkes a chance to be re-united with their former club, while Easter Bank Holiday sees a trip to relegated Margate as well as the return fixture with the Moatsiders.
We finish the season at home against Brightlingsea Regent on Saturday 28th April.
