This afternoon the Gloucestershire based Rugby League side the All Golds have announced their fixtures for the inaugural Southern Conference League, as well as the first batch of friendlies during pre-season and the start of the campaign.
On Saturday 4th May, the All Golds get their Southern Conference League season underway when they travel to Valley Cougars before their first home tie a week later – when they welcome Torfaen Tigers to Gloucester.
In the newly announced Southern Conference League, the All Golds will be in the Western Division along with Valley Cougars, Torfaen Tigers, Cardiff Blue Dragons and Swindon St George, whilst the Eastern Division houses 9 teams for the 2019 season.
The domestic season stretches until 17th August for the All Golds, when they host Swindon St George for their final scheduled game. If the All Golds finish in the top four in the Western Division then they will qualify for the play-offs, which start on Saturday 31st August.
The play-offs continue with semi finals a week later, before the play off final on Saturday 14th September – where the Southern Conference League Champion will be confirmed.
All league games are scheduled for a 14:30 kick off time but as always are subject to change throughout the season.
Along with the league games, the club have confirmed the first batch of friendlies. The All Golds travel to Exeter University on Sunday 17th February, before a game away at the Royal Navy side in March.
Their final game before the season kicks off sees the opponent yet to be confirmed, but the All Golds have told us it has been penciled in for Saturday 27th April.
