The football season across the district has officially started and many clubs have now played their first match.

Most of the fixtures are now out across the different divisions and some exciting match-ups are coming.

All games are a 3pm kick-off unless otherwise stated.

Fixtures are subject to change, sometimes at short notice.

Fresh off a pre-season high-scoring 4-4 draw against Nettleham, step seven Collingham were due to play their first game this past weekend, but it was cancelled.

They will instead start their campaign in the Central Midlands League North Division this coming weekend (Saturday) against Dinnington Town at home in front of their brand new stand.

Manager Gary Clarke is optimistic about the upcoming season and it will be interesting to see how the Station Road team perform as the season progresses.

The club put together a team that took out the Collingham Cricket Club trophy proving they can play cricket, as well as football.

Collingham, who recently announced the signing of defender Josh Barker, will then play Staveley Miners Welfare Reserves at Inkersall Road, Staveley, in Derbyshire on August 13.

They will then take on AFC Phoenix and AFC Bentley First at home on August 20 and 24 respectively.

The match against Bentley will kick-off at 7.45 pm.

Bingham Town will be playing in the Euro Soccer Nottinghamshire Senior League this season.

Manager Mark Boyes has announced the new signings of Michal Noga — a strong and powerful forward with great link up play — and Mark Toule who is a strong quick left full back/wing back with lots of experience.

He said that these will help strengthen the squad to hopefully push them for a top five finish,and that the squad may be adding a few more players in the coming weeks.

They lost narrowly to Gedling Miners Welfare on Saturday, 2-1, and will be keen to get back to the winning ways of last season.

Harrowby United at 7.45pm at their ground of Environcom Stadium follows on August 23, and will be an interesting match with both joint team managers of Town having strong ties to their previous club.

Southwell City FC are in step six this year after winning promotion last season. They have started their campaign with a 2-2 draw on Saturday against Kirby Muxloe, a game they should have won as they were up by two at half time.

They will be determined to get some wins in August and are chomping at the bit for their next match against Clifton All Whites away at the Norman Archer Memorial ground, Clifton on August 6.

A night game at Rainworth Miners Welfare on August 9 at Kirklington, Rainworth, is next (7.45 pm) followed by Grantham Town FC Academy at home on August 13.

They have yet to unveil their new kit on the playing field, which will feature men's mental health charity, Enlighten the Shadows, an initiative the club has done for the charity at no charge.
