After a small delay in finalising our 2018 schedule, we can finally unveil the dates for our fixtures in the Premier North Division this upcoming season.
Nighthawks fans will have to wait until Sunday May 13th for our guys to hit the field, when they open up the season with a tough opening game away at new boys Manchester Titans. The fixtures don’t get any easier as we then head home to host Britball’s current champions, Tamworth Phoenix on Sunday May 20th. All of our 2018 fixtures will be held at the Hawks Nest, at JMO Sports Park.
We then have a week off before we begin a 4 game streak that sees us playing every week in June. First up, we host perennial Prem North opponents, the Sheffield Giants on Sunday June 3rd, before hosting Manchester at JMO on the 10th. We then make a return trip to Tamworth on Sunday June 17th, before rounding June off with our only Saturday fixture this year, an away journey to Edinburgh Wolves.
July begins with what will be a much needed bye week on Sunday 1st July, before we head back to Scotland to take on East Kilbride Pirates on Sunday 8th July. The next two weekends in July will see the two Scottish teams travel down to Merseyside, with Edinburgh the visitors on Sunday 15th July and EKP travelling to us on the 22nd.
We then have two weeks off as the Great Britain Lions head to Finland for the European Championships, before we finish our season on Sunday 12th August with a trip to Sheffield. Hopefully, we will then see play off football the bank holiday weekend in August (25/26th) and onto the Britbowl, which for the first time in 4 years will be held in September (8th/9th).
