Loughborough are first leaders in the Northern Premier for the new season and next host Huddersfield. All the other opening day victors are away, including debutants Burnley at fellow promoted side West Brom and last season’s runners-up Sunderland at Fylde.

Yeovil have cruised to two big away wins so far in League and Cup, with Chichester the first to test them on their own turf. Keynsham get underway at home to MK Dons and Oxford start their Southern Premier fixtures with a testing trip to Watford. Promoted Crawley hope for back to back wins when hosting Hounslow and Gillingham look to continue their fine start against Plymouth after winning at Cardiff first time out. The Welsh side’s match with Portsmouth is off due to international call-ups.

Birmingham & West Midlands versus Long Eaton United is a clash of first and third in Division 1 Midlands, Chester le Street take on Bradford after both won their openers in the North.

Something must also give in the South East at the meeting of Enfield and leaders Leyton Orient, both of whom made winning starts, likewise Buckland and Cheltenham in the South West.
