We have now received confirmation of the Pre-season fixtures for the upcoming 2019/2020 season
Billingham have gone all out and gone for tough opposition in preparation for the new season.
17th August sees the Lions and 1st XV at home against GHA Glasgow. Who you may ask? GHA Glasgow currently play in National League One in the Scottish leagues against the likes of Jed-Forest and Musselburgh.
GHA will be a tough opposition for both Billingham teams. Last year seen GHA beat Harrogate away 12-21
23rd August is a Friday night game against National Two team Tynedale. An exciting opportunity for the 1st XV to play against a team steeped in history. Tynedale had a much improved season in 2018/2019 which saw former Billingham Colt Morgan Passman who is now at Falcons (on loan at Tynedale) scoring 31 tries for them.
Last and by no means least is Mowden park at home on the 28th August. A National One Team. A team we know a lot about. Not only a preseason game, this doubles up as the Durham County Cup Final. So a lot riding on it for both teams!!
Kick off times are TBC…..
We are now starting to build for the new season looking to build on last season fantastic results.
Pre season commences on the 18th June. All new players are welcome!!
The fixtures will be due out shortly so will get this out on the website once the RFU have published these.
