DORCHESTER Town and Weymouth will meet for the first time in next season’s Southern League Premier Division on August 25 before clashing again on Boxing Day, it has been confirmed.

Next term’s fixtures have just been published and they see the Terras host the Magpies on August Bank Holiday Monday (3pm).

The reverse fixture between the two rivals then takes place at the Avenue on December 26 (3pm).

Dorchester kick-off their campaign on August 9 with a trip to Arlesey Town, while Weymouth entertain Hungerford Town at the Bob Lucas Stadium.

The following Tuesday (August 12) see the Terras home again against Frome Town and the Magpies away to Burnham.

Dorchester’s first home league game next season comes on August 16 when demoted Hereford United visit the county town.

The same day, Weymouth have their opening away fixture when they go to St Neots Town.

It was thought that the second Dorchester-Weymouth derby would be contested on New Year’s Day, instead the Terras host Truro City and the Magpies make the short trip to Poole Town – that is set to be the first time ex-Magpies’ skipper Mark Jermyn comes face-to-face with his former club.

On the last day of the season, April 25, Dorchester are home to Slough Town and Weymouth travel to Biggleswade Town.
