AFC Bournemouth, Sunderland, Barnet, Verwood Town
Saturday 7th August:
Western League
Gillingham Town v Lebeq
1pm - presumably because Woodwater Lane doesn't have lights yet.

Only 3pm KO within reach afterwards appears to be Donhead United v Sturminster Newton United Reserves in a Pre-Season Friendly. Tisbury United might also be home at 3pm as their Reserves are hosting Donhead Reserves at 1230.

For any cricket hoppers who still count ticks if arriving halfway through the first innings, the nearest Dorset League matches are at
Sherborne v Dorchester (Premier)
Marnhull v Stalbridge (Div 1)
Sturminster & Hinton v Wareham (Div 3)
All 40 overs, 1:30pm starts.

Re Gillingham Town, there is a music festival on at the ground next weekend hence the early kick off. Today’s Programme said it’s a 1.30pm kick off next week

Whereabouts will they hold the festival at Gillingham Town? Surely not on the pitch just after the season's started, especially as it's still growing around the drainage lines.

The FAW App suggests this is at Penybont?

Good spot! I hadn't seen that. Presumably there is cricket at Pencoed. Still a good opportunity for a 'double' for anyone who fancies a Trophy tie at 2pm, especially as there is no extra time this season. The ties at Cefn Cribwr, Tara Steel, Porthcawl, Garw and the two at Llandarcy (Birchgrove Colts and Ynysygerwn) would all be within easy reach if driving.

While 2:30pm is the standard kick-off time in the Stroud & District League there are a number of 1pm KO's on 21st and 28th August preceding another game on the same venue at 3pm. A handful of Gloucestershire County and Northern Senior League matches at 3pm may also be within reach for a tight double.

Saturday 21st, 1pm:
D1 Kingswood v Quedgeley Wanderers Res (Reserves at 3pm)
D1 Rodborough Old Boys v Tredworth Tigers (Stratford Court; Stroud United v Cotswold Rangers in D4 at 3pm)
D2 Minety v Sharpness Res (Reserves at 3pm)
D2 Wotton Rovers v Cam Bulldogs (Reserves at 3pm)
D3 Redmarley & Tibberton United v Painswick (Newent Community School,; Reserves at 3pm)
D4 Tuffley Rovers 4ths v Kings Stanley Res (Holmleigh Park High School #1; Gloster Rovers v Poulton in D5 on #2 at 3pm)
D7 Robinswood Athletic v Abbeymead Rovers 3rds (Walls S&SC #2; Barnwood Utd Res v Cashes Green in D3 on #1 at 3pm)

Saturday 28th, 1pm:
D1 Old Richians v Kingsway Rovers (Reserves at 3pm)
D1 Wickwar Wanderers v Minchinhampton (Reserves at 3pm)
D2 Tuffley Rovers 3rds v Upton St Leonards Res (Holmleigh Park #1; 5ths v Eastcombe in D5 at 3pm on #2)
D4 Longlevens 4ths v Chalford 3rds (Longford Lane #2; 5ths at 3pm)
D5 Randwick Res v Gloster Rovers (3rds at 3pm)
D7 SB Galacticos v Longford Res (Dowty S&SC, Staverton #2; Bush v Painswick Res in same Div at 3pm on #1)

In GNSL, Longlevens Reserves are home on both days on what's presumably the main pitch at Longford Lane; Charfield v Brockworth Albion on 21st should be reachable from Kingswood or Wotton Rovers; Leonard Stanley v Winchcombe Town should be reachable from Rodborough Old Boys. County League games at Hardwicke and Quedgeley on 28th should be reachable from Tuffley Rovers 3rds.

The two games scheduled for Stratford Court - Rodborough Old Boys and Stroud United are now being played at King George V Field, Park Road, Nailsworth GL6 0HT.

Gloster Rovers is OFF but Tuffley Rovers 4ths at the same venue still kicking off at 1pm. The two Minety games are being played at Hayes Lane, Badminton, Minety village playing field doesn't appear to be available to them until 18th September and their next two home games after tomorrow are being played at Kingsway and Kingshill respectively.

Don't know if it's been posted on here already, but the Kent County League has a standard kick off time this season of 1445.

Don't know why .

Originally so the results would have time to get into the Saturday evening classified papers. They've never bothered to revert back to 3 o'clock.

The Anglian Combination is another league that's traditional kick off time (2-30) originates from getting reports in to The Pink Un on time.
This Saturday two games aren't kicking off at 2-30 though, Blofield United v Wroxham Reserves is 1pm not sure why as BU reserves are away, Also Shrublands v Wymondham Town Reserves is listed as 2pm.

Again not a very unusual kick off time but it varies from standard 3pm at this of year for this league, plus it is at an alternative venue.
