Priory Lane 3G
Priory Lane 3G

Hemel Hempstead Town are the first National South visitors to the new Priory Lane 3G, when the season opens on Saturday, August 6.

The Sports are then on the road twice - to Hampton and Richmond on Tuesday 9th and to Gosport Borough on Saturday 13th. Ebbsfleet United come to the Lane on the Saturday of August Bank Holiday weekend, and Borough will in fact have played 11 games - more than a quarter of the league season - by Tuesday 13th September, when they host Welling United.

Traditional Christmas fixtures see Whitehawk visit the Lane on Boxing Day, with the return trip to the Enclosed Ground on New Year’s Day.
