New Clubs to Face in New Season Fixtures
Not quite so many new faces this season as in previous ones as some old foes have bounced straight back up after relegation. Gravesend and Westcliff rejoin N3L&SE whilst London Irish Wild Geese have flown SE again after dropping down from N2S as results went against them on the last day of the season. With several clubs going up/down in the SW they tend to be the ones who get rearranged from SW to SE as needs be as well.
Amersham & Chiltern and Chichester are the two newbies although the latter have locked horns in 'friendlies' with TJs in recent seasons so will be familiar to some.
TJ's season starts with two successive home games as Tring arrive on the 8th September hoping to build on an impressive 2013-14 campaign. Near neighbours Westcombe Park are at The Slade on the 15th doubtless hoping to put what for them was a disappointing last season behind them.
Chichester are the first up newbies, on 27th September again at Home whilst another Kent club, Gravesend make an immediate return from L1S pitch up on 11th October. Amersham & Chiltern pop down the M40 and round the M25 to visit on 25th October.
With Dorking having gone up the trip to London Irish Wild Geese on 22nd November may be the one to wet your whistle if you like to make your rugby more of a day out affair.
Still with us after last season are Barnes, Bury St Edmunds, CS Rugby 1863, East Grinstead and Hertford.
And of course Guernsey again provide an overseas option this time as a pre-Christmas jaunt on 13th December with the return leg on 11th April being the Captains' Day event and last home fixture of the season.
