AFC Hornchurch will start life in the Bostik Premier Division with a home match against Leatherhead on Saturday, August 11.

A few days later the Urchins will travel away to Wingate & Finchley on Tuesday, August 14.

They will then travel away the following weekend to Enfield Town on August, 18.

Jimmy McFarlane’s side will host Bognor Regis Town on Saturday, August 25 and then travel away to Brightlingsea Regent on the Bank Holiday Monday.

During the festive period the Bostik North champions will make the trip to Harlow Town on Saturday, December 29 but will not play on Boxing Day or New Years Day.

Hornchurch will then finish the campaign away to Lewes on Saturday, April 27.

Neighbours Romford will also start their campaign at home against Great Wakering Rovers.

Boro will then travel away to Bury Town the following Saturday as they look to get off to a stronger start than last term.

On Bank Holiday Monday (August 27) Paul Martin’s side will welcome Tilbury to Rookery Hill.

Unlike the Urchins Romford will be playing on Boxing Day and will make the short trip to Chadfields for the return leg against Tilbury.

They also host Grays Athletic on New Years Day for their first game in 2019 before wrapping up their campaign at home to new boys Felixstowe & Walton.

Full fixture list will be in this week’s Romford Recorder.
