Datchworth and Welwyn have a long wait until they can lock horns once again following the release of the London & South East rugby fixtures.
The Men in Green's promotion last season back to London Two North West put them and their Hobbs Way rivals on a collision course.
But the first meeting doesn't arrive until December 14, the final game before Christmas, when Welwyn go to Datchworth Green.
The return fixture will form the penultimate clash of the season on April 4.
Welwyn's opening game on September 14 pits them against the well-supported and promoted champions London Welsh at home.
Datchworth meanwhile travel to relegated Fullerians.
Their first game at home is against another side demoted from North One, Luton, the same day as Welwyn go to Grasshoppers.
These games will be the first to be played in 2020 while the opening day matches also close out the season on April 18.
