Provisional 2020 League fixtures announced
Posted on 15th November 2019 at 12:47
The provisional YSPL fixtures for the 2020 season have now been published.
The season will open on Saturday 18 April when champions Doncaster Town host Elsecar. Newly-promoted Cawthorne will be at home to Barnsley Woolley Miners and Appleby Frodingham will mark their return to the ranks of the YSPL with a home game against Whitley Hall. The full opening day fixtures are:
Appleby Frodingham v Whitley Hall
Cawthorne v Barnsley Woolley Miners
Doncaster Town v Elsecar
Tickhill v Sheffield Collegiate
Wakefield Thornes v Hallam
Wickersley Old Village v Treeton
As there are 22 sets of fixtures and only 21 available Saturdays, it will again be necessary to have a set of fixtures on the Spring Bank Holiday Monday, 25 May. Saturday is always the preferred date for league fixtures, but, as we are unable to use 12 September due to the White Rose Yorkshire Champions play-off semi-finals, we have chosen to continue with the Spring Bank Holiday fixture in preference to a Sunday or the August Bank Holiday, when player availability is likely to be more affected by holidays.
The final fixtures, including the Sunday cup fixtures, will be published before the end of the year. In the meantime, the full set of provisional fixtures can be viewed here.
