Drove past a couple of weeks ago and it looks a terrific facility. The stand and clubouse complex looks great and has some character.

With my daughter now playing for Preston Grasshoppers girls we'll make a point of heading there on the 30th for the opening game.

Also planning to be at the Kendal-Preston game. I'll keep an eye out for you.

Saturday 11th November
BT National League Division 3
Newton Stewart v Orkney (1700)

This match is being played at Blairmount Park, the 3G home of Newton Stewart FC, rather than the rugby club's usual home ground in Bladnoch. Kick-off changed from the originally advertised time of 1230 to fit around Orkney's travel plans.

Orrell have switched Saturday's (16/12) South Lancs/Cheshire Two game with Liverpool Collegiate to Winstanley College, Billinge, usual venue (as far as I can tell) of the club's second XV fixtures. Reason not explained. There doesn't appear to be a plastic pitch at Winstanley College.

Now showing a P over the fixture (for postponed). Would have been very surprised if it was played just two days after Long Eaton's Midlands Senior Vase Semi-Final at Northampton Casuals.

Newcastle Falcons are playing their March 24 Premiership fixture with Northampton at St James' Park. Dubbed The Big One, the game kicks off at 5.30pm. Cheapest tickets (in the Gallowgate End) are a tenner. Ticket sales have passed 18,000, guaranteeing a record attendance for a Falcons home match. Newcastle University and Northumbria University meet in a curtain-raiser starting at 3pm.

Perranporth v Redruth Albany
St Just v Stithians

St Agnes v Camborne SoM has disappeared from the RFU fixture list with no new date. Saltash presumably couldn't play again just two days after their RFU Senior Vase semi final win. Gordano will have had three days rest before their match at Imperial as their 55-7 win over Minehead Barbarians was played on Good Friday and switched at the last minute to Hornets 3G as their own ground was waterlogged.

Of the remaining games none of the clubs involved have updated their websites or social media to confirm the games are on. Only kick off time I can find is 3pm for Illogan Park (Liskeard-Looe Pitchero).

Re: [cherryhopper] One for the Rugby Union Hoppers [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

On Saturday 2nd June Bodmin RFC is hosting the Tribute Cornwall Clubs Cup Finals Day, a competition for level 9 and 10 clubs not to be confused with the main county cup for higher league sides. There are four separate competitions usually played between the top four and bottom four teams each in Cornwall 1 and Cornwall 2. The Semi-Finals were played over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend although some of those resulted in walkovers, the host club failed to make it to the main cup final losing to Newquay in the Semi's. The line-up according to Bodmin's Pitchero site is:

1100 - Perranporth v Redruth Albany - Shield Final
1130 - Stithians v Lankelly-Fowey - Vase Final
1400 - Illogan Park v St Agnes - Plate Final
1500 - (main event) Newquay Hornets v Liskeard-Looe - Clubs Cup Final.

This differs slightly to Trelawny's Army website which says Stithians are playing Redruth Albany and makes no mention of the 11am final. Presumably two different pitches will be used. Admission charge for the day is 5, doesn't say if a programme will be issued. Ground is just off the A30/A38 junction.

Trophies and medals will be presented after each game by Cornwall RFU president Mr Peter James.

Saturday 1st September:

Championship - Ealing Trailfinders v London Irish (1915)

Late kick-off allows plenty of scope for a double with football in the afternoon and, unlike on a Sunday when London Broncos play, you can get there on the West Ealing to Greenford Railway line which passes the ground, nearest station Castle Bar Park.

A reminder that Anselmians, newly promoted to North One West, are spending 2018-19 at Rivacre Park, Vauxhall Sports & Social Club, while their Malone Field ground at Eastham receives a multi-million pound makeover. The first competitive game at their temporary home is on September 1, when Northwich provide the opposition. By coincidence, the teams meet at Northwich on Saturday (25/8) in a Cheshire Cup first round tie. Anselmians have played two warm-up games at Rivacre Park, against Mold and Liverpool Collegiate.

Are they using the main ground or outside pitch at Rivacre Park? From memory, when I visited Vauxhall Motors FC in 2000, there was another railed off pitch next to the main ground.

I'll pass on that. I went to Rivacre Park for the football in 2001, and remember very little about it, partly because it was an evening fixture at the end of October. There are pics, on the Anselmians website and Twitter account, of the Mold friendly, including one of rugby sticks in front of football goalposts (below). Doesn't look much like the main pitch. If I bother with Anselmians this season (the drive from York is a PITA), I'll email the club to find out exactly where they are playing. When I visited Malone Field at the end of last season, one of the coaches mentioned an outside pitch at Vauxhall S&SC but it was all a bit vague. I got the impression nothing had been finalised.

Is this the back pitch?

Judging from a website piece about sponsorship, Anselmians will continue to issue programmes.

Yes that is the pitch outside the main stadium. More a front pitch than a back pitch, adjacent to Rivacre Road.

Re: [martin55] One for the Rugby Union Hoppers [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Two late kick-off's in National League 2 South next Saturday 20th October offering potential double opportunities:

1700 - London Irish Wild Geese v Redruth
1930 - Guernsey v Birmingham Solihull

Wild Geese offers a tight double with a few 3pm football matches including Met Police v Havant & Waterlooville in FA Cup, Combined Counties matches at Hanworth Villa and Walton & Hersham or NPL in Surrey Elite Intermediate League. Earlier starts in the lower Surrey Leagues or AFA make for easier doubles. Nearest 3pm rugby matches are Esher v Rotherham (National League 1); Twickenham v Farnham (London 2 South West); Teddington v Andover (London 3 South West, ground next to NPL).

A treble is possible on Guernsey on the Saturday, the only two Priaulx League football matches that day are UCF Sylvans v Manzur (1400) and St Martins v Northerners (1700). Guernsey FC, who play in the same stadium as the rugby club, are home to Hastings United on the Sunday (1400).
