Armthorpe Welfare will host league newcomers Worksop Town in their Northern Counties East League Premier Division opener on August 9.

Worksop resigned from the Evo-Stik Premier Division at the end of last season due to financial problems.

Having dropped from tier seven to tier nine in the English football pyramid, Worksop’s visit to Church Street is likely to create plenty of local interest.

Armthorpe will follow up their opening day fixture with a short journey to Parkgate the following Tuesday.

Seven of Welfare’s opening ten league games are at home, handing Welfare the opportunity to get off to a solid start.

Maltby Main also enjoy a run of early season home fixtures, with their first four league games at their Muglet Lane base.

Maltby start at home to Nostell Miners Welfare, and also host Glasshoughton Welfare, Handsworth Parramore and Thackley in August.

Rossington Main start at home to Hall Road Rangers in Division One.

Rossington wrap their season up next May away from home against AFC Mansfield.

Armthorpe travel to Garforth Town, while Maltby finish the season at home to Parkgate.
