Sevenoaks RFC 1st XV open their league account with an away trip to Bedford Athletic on Saturday 7th September, before making their first appearance at the Paddock on 14th September, when they host Kent rivals Sidcup RFC.  The month of September is completed with an away trip to last year’s third placed Wimbledon and a home fixture to Guildford RFC.

Other notable fixtures for the Oaks include resuming battle with Brighton Blues on 12th October, whilst the return of the A21 derby against Tunbridge Wells RFC is first played at St Marks Road on 9th November, before the return fixture at the Paddock on 22nd February.  Unlike last season, Oaks will finish their campaign at home, when they entertain Bedford Athletic RFC.

In addition to the league fixtures confirmation, Head Coach Adam Bowman has also confirmed his squad’s pre-season schedule, which is outlined below, along with the full 1st XV fixture list.
