It's been an exciting day for fans of clubs in The Bostik League as the 2017/18 season fixtures have been announced. The campaign opens on Saturday 12th August and has thrown up some fascinating fixtures.  

Billericay Town v Kingstonian 
Burgess Hill Town v Needham Market 
Dulwich Hamlet v Staines Town 
Enfield Town v Folkestone Invicta 
Harrow Borough v Harlow Town 
Leatherhead v Lowestoft Town 
Leiston v Dorking Wanderers 
Merstham v Wingate & Finchley 
Metropolitan Police v Worthing 
Thurrock v Margate 
Tonbridge Angels v Hendon 
Tooting & Mitcham United v Brightlingsea Regent 

The real stand out Premier Division game sees Craig Edwards takes his new Kingstonian side to his old Billericay Town side who will be hot favourites for the league title.

It's the Terrors v Regent as the two Division One North and South Champions go head to head at Imperial Fields - the other promoted sides are Dorking Wanderers who have an interesting trip away to Leiston and Thurrock who entertain Margate. Wanderers are predicted to do well by many so the result of their game could be an early indication as to how well? 
AFC Hornchurch v Soham Town Rangers 
AFC Sudbury v Canvey Island 
Aveley v Bowers & Pitsea 
Barking v Waltham Abbey 
Brentwood Town v Hertford Town 
Bury Town v Romford 
Dereham Town v Cheshunt 
Heybridge Swifts v Mildenhall Town 
Norwich United v Haringey Borough 
Tilbury v Grays Athletic 
Ware v Maldon & Tiptree 
Witham Town v Potters Bar Town 

In D1N there should be a good crowd in Aveley's first competitive game at their new Parkside ground against one of their local rival's Bowers and Pitsea.  The local derby between Tilbury and Grays Athletic is also a great season opener. Essex Senior League champion's Barking have recruited well over the summer and are expected to do well - they welcome Waltham Abbey to Mayesbrook Park. The other promoted sides are Hertford Town who go to Brentwood Town and Mildenhall Town who visit Heybridge Swifts.

Ashford United v Carshalton Athletic 
Chipstead v Sittingbourne 
Cray Wanderers v Thamesmead Town 
Greenwich Borough v Whyteleafe 
Guernsey v East Grinstead Town 
Hastings United v Corinthian-Casuals 
Herne Bay v Lewes 
Hythe Town v Walton Casuals 
Molesey v Horsham 
Ramsgate v Phoenix Sports 
Shoreham v South Park 
VCD Athletic v Faversham Town 

Shoreham and Ashford United are the new names in D1S who are both at home against Carshalton Athletic and South Park. Greenwich Borough, who lost in the play-off final and are expected to do well, welcome Whyteleafe.
