2019 Scratch League

Reigning champions Northants County have been scheduled to begin their Scratch League title defence with a home contest against 2017 winners Wellingborough on Saturday, June 8th.
On the same day, newly-promoted Staverton Park travel to Peterborough Milton, who last won the League in 2013, while Northampton need to wait until the end of the month before making their first appearance as they go to Wellingborough.
With the top flight being cut from six to five teams, all clubs face four home and four away matches, culminating in the last round of fixtures in October.
Overstone Park, who were relegated from the first division last year, can gain some early momentum in their promotion campaign as their opening two games in late May are at home to Kettering and Kingsthorpe, who also went down in 2018.
Collingtree Park, who were promoted from the third tier last season, and Cold Ashby are the other two sides in the second division.
The third category sees four teams battling it out for promotion as Farthingstone host Whittlebury Park in the opening match on Sunday, June 2nd, while Daventry and Rushden go head-to-head a week later.
