Thurlow Nunn Premier Division champions Hadleigh United will start the defence of their title at newly-promoted Fakenham Town on August 9.
The Ghosts won promotion last season and are sure to provide Stuart Crawford’s side with a stiff test on opening day – the Premier Division fixtures being announced this morning.
There are some intriguing ties with the other newly-promoted teams, Ipswich Wanderers and Whitton United facing Diss Town (at home) and Haverhill Rovers (away) respectively.
Felixstowe & Walton, who enjoyed such a successful 2014/14 season, start their campaign at home with a tough assignment against Norwich United, while Mildenhall and Brantham go head to head at the Recway.
The first midweek league action of the Premier Division campaign sees Hadleigh making their first home League appearance since they clinched the title on the final day of last season with victory over Mildenhall Town – their opponents on Tuesday, August 12 are Wivenhoe Town.
