Goresbrook will begin the delayed 2020 Shepherd Neame Essex League season with a trip to Brentwood on Saturday.

Divisions have been redrawn by the executive committee along regional lines for the nine-week competition, which has been held up by the coronavirus pandemic.

And after visiting Brentwood seconds for their opening fixture in the first tier Ten Doeschate division, Goresbrook will welcome Chelmsford twos to May & Baker on July 25.

They will host Upminster in week three, league newcomers Springfield the following week and then visit Gidea Park & Romford, Ardleigh Green & Havering and Old Brentwoods on successive weekends.

Following a trip to Shenfield seconds in week eight, Brook are due to end their campaign with another away game at Hornchurch seconds.

The club put out two teams in friendlies against Hornchurch Athletic last weekend, with Danny Gillham (54) and Lee Jones (40 not out) leading the way as one of them won by three wickets.
