Interesting match ups for the opening weekend. Good opportunity to put down a marker early on. Also see only 1 break week during the first 10 fixtures, not sure this was the point of reducing the fixture list as there's less free weekends than ever and certainly no room for cup competitions.

I count 3 free weekends. Interestingly, they are different to R2. In that league they have a full fixture list on 21st Dec whereas Y1 breaks on the 14th.
"Bother!" said Pooh, as he found his smack had talc in it.

After November the schedule becomes more manageable, assuming there isn't a ton of re-arranged fixtures. Scheduling fixtures on 21st December seems really stupid whatever league you are in. The likelihood of the pitches being playable then is questionable anyway but it's still stupid to have fixtures that close to xmas.

Which is what struck me at first glance.
