Look ahead to the new season - Part 2: Saturday 2nd XI

By Karl Quinney

The second installment looking ahead to 2019 at Willoughby CC

Once the first few weeks of pre-season friendlies are negotiated (see previous article for details), our Saturday 2nds [weather permitting of course] will have the honour of the club’s first NCL fixture when we entertain fellow league newcomers Pytchley on Saturday 4th May.

The 2nds first away fixture is at Carrib United IIs a week later on Saturday 11th May – the first weekend where both our Saturdays teams will be in action together – before we welcome Barton Seagrave’s new third XI to The Green on Whitsun Saturday 25th May.

The second of four free weeks (if you count the opening weekend in April) is on Saturday 1st June – no doubt those not getting a game will be clamouring for one on the Sunday – before we face Great Oakley IIs on consecutive weeks; away on Saturday 8th June with the return on Saturday 15th.

Further free weeks on 20th July and 24th August also means the 2nds league season is due to finish on Saturday 21st September, with an away trip to Stony Stratford Vs.

Full list of teams we face on a home and away basis are:

  • Barton Seagrave III
  • Brixworth IV
  • Carrib United II
  • Great Oakley II
  • Isham Zingari
  • Pytchley
  • Stony Stratford V
  • Weekley and Warkton III
  • Weldon III
