The draw for the early rounds of the FA Cup is due to be published on this coming Friday 7 July 2017.

Watch this space.

Following the reinstatement of Guisborough to Division 1, two additional league fixtures have appeared:

Saturday 14 /10/17 Guisborough Town v Sunderland RCA

Saturday 03/03/18 Sunderland RCA v Guisborough Town

so far: September 9 and September 23. In the past, fixtures have been brought forward from later in the season. Presumably, this will happen again this season.

Other teams without a fixture on September 9 are: Billingham Synthonia, Consett, Morpeth, Benfield, North Shields, Shildon, Stockton Town, Team Northumbria, Washington, West Auckland and Whitley Bay.

September 23 can't easily be finalised until after the Vase first qualifying round on September 9.

Only one blank up to now. For some reason I thought that RCA are due to play West Auckland on Sept 23 and West have a bye in FA Vase 1QR but RCA are down to play Dunston.
