League re-structering means new teams to visit Lodge Road

Confusion following the re-organisation of the non-league pyramid has been cleared up and Yate Town now know who will be their opposition during the coming season.

Several clubs made appeals to the Football Association over their placing, resulting in Evesham United and Cinderford Town moving back into the West Division, where they will be visitors to Yate Town FC’s home ground at Lodge Road next season. 

Didcot Town, however, have moved in the opposite direction and will compete in the East Division.

Yate have organised a programme of pre-season friendly matches, including home fixtures against a Bristol Rovers XI and National League South team Chippenham Town.

The Southern League season will start on August 11th, with league fixtures being published in mid-July.

Yate Town’s full pre-season programme is as follows:

Sat 14Th July, Bristol Rovers Xi, Lodge Road, K.o. 3.00 Pm

Tues 17Th July, Hengrove Athletic, Away K.o. 7.30 Pm

Sat 21St July, Portland UtdAway, K.o. 3.00 Pm
