Shildon’s Northern League Division One fixtures for the 2014-15 have been published. The Railwaymen will open their campaign with a home match against Billingham Synthonia, evoking memories of last season’s Durham Challenge Cup triumph at the Synners’ home ground.
The Cup winners will visit newcomers Jarrow Roofing on August 23rd while Second Division Champions, North Shields will visit Dean Street on 10th September. The visit of the third newcomers, West Allotment Celtic will have to wait until 25th October.
Expected title challengers and local rivals, West Auckland Town will host Shildon on 4th October, while the first game against last season’s runners up Celtic Nation will take place at Dean Street on November 8th.
Meanwhile, the first two rounds of the Brooks Mileson Memorial League Cup have also been drawn and Shildon will entertain Second Division Whickham at Dean Street in the First Round.
