Thackley face the club that knocked them out of the Emirates FA Cup at the first hurdle last weekend when Harrogate Railway Athletic make a swift return to Dennyfield for a league game.

The clubs played out a seven-goal thriller at the same venue last week, with the Rail going through to the next round courtesy of a penultimate- minute winner.

The Dennyboys will be hoping for a repeat of last season’s Toolstation Northern Counties East Premier Division home meeting, which they won 2-1.

However, confidence will be low after a cup exit and Wednesday’s 4-1 league defeat at Handsworth Parramore.

The Dennyboys need a good result to kick-start their season.

Albion Sports began their league season with a midweek 3-0 home win over Garforth Town, but Kulwinder Sandhu’s Lions have a tricky away game on the first Saturday of the league campaign against Staveley Miners' Welfare, who won the corresponding fixture 8-0 in January.

Liversedge were due to open their league campaign in midweek but their home game against Worksop Town was postponed as the hosts had an FA Cup replay against visitors Armthorpe Welfare, which they won 5-3.

Sedge enjoyed a 3-1 win at Rainworth last term, with Joe Walton bagging a brace and Steve Wales chipping in, so they will travel in good heart.

Eccleshill United have a home game in Division One against Shirebrook Town.

The Eagles have one point on the board after a 3-3 draw at Yorkshire Amateur on opening day.

Campion also earned a point from their first game of the new season with a 1-1 draw at Rossington Main but they are heading into the unknown on Saturday.

James Bicknell’s men head to Derbyshire-based FC Bolsover, who are newcomers to step six on the pyramid system.

They play at Langwith Road and have come onto the non-league ladder from the Central Midlands League.

In the Hallmark Security League, Silsden begin their season with a home game against Sandbach United.

Sandbach were one of five newcomers to the division last term but they did the double over the Cobbydalers.

They won 2-1 at Keighley Road in early December after Silsden had lost 2-0 in the reverse fixture in Cheshire two months earlier.
