September Derby Games
There will be two Kent ‘derby’ games in the first month of the new season with Tonbridge Juddians and Blackheath both scheduled to visit the Marine Travel Ground in September. Canterbury meet TJs on September 10th and Blackheath on September 24th. Both were relegated from National One last season. The opening day of the National 2 East season on September 3rd sees Canterbury travel to Norfolk to meet newly promoted North Walsham and to Westcliff on September 17th. North Walsham were our first ever opponents at National level when we were promoted to National 3 in 2006.
