By Michael Vaughton


Bishop’s Stortford will begin their 2019-20 National League 1 campaign with a trip to Plymouth Albion on Saturday, September 7.

Andy Long’s side, who pulled off a great escape last term to finish ninth having been bottom in January, entertain Cambridge in their first home match of the season at Silver Leys on September 14.

A trip to Birmingham Moseley and a visit from Darlington Mowden Park will complete the opening month.

Plymouth will also be Stortford’s opponents when the season comes to a conclusion on April 25.
