Staverton Park will need to wait before beginning the defence of their Cecil Leitch crown as they travel to Peterborough Milton for their opening tie on April 20.

By then, Milton would have already played three times, starting with a trip to Elton Furze on March 17, while fellow second division sides Northants County and Brampton Heath would also be under way.

The opening tie in the third division sees Daventry travel to Kettering on March 24, while Whittlebury Park, Cold Ashby and Oundle wait for their first outings.

Silverstone begin and end proceedings in Division One as they take on Rushden away and home on April 12 and July 6 respectively. Cherwell Edge and Northampton are the other sides in the group.

April 19 offers an opening day double-header in the other division as Collingtree Park travel to Kingsthorpe and Wellingborough host Priors Hall. Overstone Park play the final match at home to Priors on July 21.

With the leading team from each section progressing, the semi-finals take place in the second week in August, with the final scheduled for a month later on a neutral venue.

Boyd makes solid start in South Africa

Top county pro Gary Boyd made a solid start to his season as he made the cut in the Joburg Open on the European Tour before going on to finish in a tie for 55th spot in South Africa.

Boyd, who will be concentrating on the Challenge Tour this year, opened with a four-under-par 67, before 
adding rounds of 71, 69 and 74 to grab 4,368 euros in prize money.

Evans facing tough challenge in Portugal

County first-team player Ryan Evans takes on a field of golfers from 22 different countries in the 83rd Portuguese International Amateur Championships at Montado Golf Resort this week.

With an incredible 71 players in the 120-man field having a handicap of plus-three or better, the Wellingborough man is aware he needs to find his best form to have any chance in the 72-hole event.
