HEMSWORTH RUFC will kick-off life in Yorkshire Division 3 with a trip to face Northallerton.

The fixtures for the new campaign were released this week and Hemsworth are on their travels for their opening match following promotion from Yorkshire Division 4.

The season will start on Saturday, September 1 and the Moxon Fields men will fancy their chances of opening with a win against a side who finished eleventh last season.

Their task will be tougher the following week, however, when they face another away match against Goole, who were playing two divisions higher in Yorkshire Division 2 last term but suffered relegation.

Hemsworth’s first home match will be against Hessle, a side who only just avoided relegation last season, on Saturday, September 15.

They’ll face last season’s Division 3 rivals Leeds Medics and Dentists away from home the following Saturday.

Hemsworth’s final game of the year will be at home against Goole, on Saturday, December 15 and they’ll start 2013 with a trip to Hessle on Saturday, January 1.

Their final game of the season will be at Moxon Fields against North Allerton on Saturday, April 20.
