Saracens Herts League Premier Division champions Welwyn Garden City will start the defence of their title at home to North Mymms this summer.

The Digswell Park-based club will welcome their neighbours from the south on May 5 with their first away game being a repeat of last year’s final against Totteridge Millhillians a week later.

WGC beat Totteridge in a last-ball thriller in September’s play-off final.

Knebworth Park host Broxbourne on opening day in Division One and there are also home games for newly promoted Tewin, who start life in Division Six A against Rickmansworth, and Hatfield Hyde who will welcome Parkfield & Headstone in Division Four A.

However, both Datchworth and Hatfield & Crusaders will start their campaigns away from home, with North Enfield the destination in Division Three A for the Villagers and Preston seconds set to host the Crusaders in their Division Five A encounter.
