Venue change that came to my attention only last week:

Harrogate Pythons, members of Yorkshire Four, are now playing at the Army Foundation College (HG3 2SE), on the west side of town, not far south of the A59 Harrogate-Skipton road. Pythons were left homeless when the Harrogate club quit Claro Road at the end of the 2014-15 season and declined to accommodate them at Rudding Lane. Looking at Pythons' website, it appears they issue - most unusual for level 10!

Anyone wishing to tick Kingston Park (for rugby union) at a bargain price should note National League Two North club Tynedale expect to stage at least two more fixtures at Newcastle Falcons' ground. Tyne's own ground and clubhouse, at Corbridge, were wrecked by the December floods. The programme for yesterday's 40-34 defeat by Broadstreet contained the following in the 'welcome' section:

"Through the generosity of Newcastle Falcons, we will be playing our next three 'home' games at Kingston Park. Kick-off is 3.30pm this week v Broadstreet; 3pm next week (27th) v Luctonians and again 3pm on 19th March v Stourbridge.

"We remain determined to return to Corbridge before the season is out and intend to make it quite an occasion when we do.

"The insurers' decision to withdraw storm and flood cover against future loss is also hampering reinstatement of the clubhouse. Plans for 'flood proofing' are under review and further details will follow."

Yorkshire Carnegie take on Aviva Premiership side Bath Rugby in a pre-season friendly at Ilkley RUFC on Saturday 13th August, kick off 6pm.

The match will form a double bill of rugby action at the picturesque Stacks Field ground (Denton Road, LS29 0BZ) with Ilkley playing earlier in the day against Blackburn RUFC, kick off 1:30pm, as part of a full day of fun at the club.

Gates open at 12:30pm and tickets can only be purchased on match day (cash only on arrival). Tickets are priced £10 for adults, senior citizens and students, and are FREE for all juniors and students under the age of 18.

For any hoppers just wishing to attend the Bath game in the evening there are plenty of afternoon double opportunities in football and rugby league with Guiseley v Dagenham & Redbridge, Harrogate Town v Altrincham or Farsley Celtic v Colwyn Bay at 3pm and numerous National Conference League fixtures in the Leeds area plus York Acorn which kick off at 2:30pm.

Re: [cherryhopper] One for the Rugby Union Hoppers [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

The British & Irish Cup gets underway this weekend and, as usual for this competition, Yorkshire Carnegie are using different venues around the county away from Headingley:

Saturday 22nd October vs Bedford - 1430 @ Selby RUFC
Sunday 11th December vs Newport Gwent Dragons Premiership Select - 1400 @ Pontefract RUFC
Saturday 21st January vs Ealing - 1400 @ Scarborough RUFC

The return visit to Gwent Dragons is being played at the Centre of Sporting Excellence, Ystrad Mynach on Saturday 17th December (1500). I believe this is next to the football ground where Risca United and Aberbargoed Buds play.

According to RFU, NCA and BBC Sport websites London Irish v Canterbury on Saturday 22nd October is an evening kick off at 7:15pm, presumably at Hazlewood training ground. Can't confirm this as both clubs list all of their matches as 3pm KO's on their websites.

Irish's 1st XV are home to Connacht A in British & Irish Cup the same afternoon so I'm wondering if both matches are being played at the same venue as a double header, be it Hazlewood or the Mad Stad?

Possible Rugby Union double on Saturday 26th November:

1415 - Wellington v Sidmouth - Western Counties West

1630 - Taunton Titans v Henley Hawks - National League 2 South

Presumably the late kick off at Taunton is so fans can watch England v Argentina before coming out of the bar to watch their own game.

Easy double on offer at New/Old Anniesland, in Glasgow's West End, on Saturday (5/11):

Glasgow Academicals v Orkney (BT National League, Division Three), 11.30am kick-off. I presume the early start is to facilitate the visitors' post-match return to the back of beyond. Then over the road for GHK v Preston Lodge (BT National League, Division Two), 3pm kick-off.

Kendal's new ground, which features a 4G pitch, will be ready for the start of the 2017-18 season. Its first game is likely to be on September 10, when Kendal Ladies Wasps face Manchester Ladies. The opening men's first XV fixture should be on September 16, when Rossendale visit in the rebranded North Premier league. The new ground, like the old, will be called Mint Bridge. Postcode is LA9 6NY.

Harrogate Pythons, of Yorkshire Three, will play next season's home matches at Station View, the ground of NCEL outfit Harrogate Railway Athletic FC. The sharing arrangement starts on July 1. Doesn't sound like great news for Railway's pitch, which invariably is in a poor state. Pythons (who issue, if anyone's interested) have spent the last two seasons at the Army Foundation College, a basic set-up three miles west of the town centre. The first competitive game at Station View (in Starbeck rather than Harrogate) should be on September 9, when Leyburn-based Wensleydale are the visitors.

Yorkshire Carnegie will once again be playing their home matches in the group stages of this season's British & Irish Cup on the road:

Sunday 22nd October vs London Scottish @ Ilkley RUFC (1500)
Saturday 9th December vs Dragons Premiership Select XV @ Huddersfield YMCA (1330)
Saturday 20th January vs Jersey @ Scarborough RUFC (1400)

Tickets for all of the above games are £10 (£5 concessions) if bought in advance or £12 (£6 concessions) on gate, FREE for under 16's.

I'm delighted by that game at Ilkley as it gives me something to combine with my planned trip to Murrayfield for Hearts v St Johnstone on the SaturdayCool.
