FYLDE Rugby Club’s fixtures for the 2011-12 season have been confirmed, reflecting the new challenges ahead of the team after advancing to National League One.

Mark Nelson, coach of the NL2 champions, said: “The programme is new and refreshing after playing more or less the same opposition for the past six or seven years.

“There are teams we have never played before, like Jersey and Cinderford, old rivals like Coventry and Rosslyn Park, and northern teams we have not met in a while, such as Wharfedale and Sedgley Park.”

There have been some amendments from the original list, in which Fylde were earmarked to play four of their first five matches at home.

That has been overcome by switching the dates for the home and away matches against Cinderford and Coventry.

As previously revealed in The Gazette, Fylde begin and end the season with matches against newly-promoted Jersey.
