Holwell are up first, their home game with Hucknall Town due to kick off at 4.45pm on Saturday.

Melton then get their Premier Division North season started with a home game against Selston, that match starting at 7.30pm on Saturday evening.

Melton will be looking to build on last season’s seventh place finish, their second game of the season being at home to Heather St John’s on Wednesday night (3rd).
