York City Ladies kick-off their North East Regional Premier League programme with a trip to Castleford White Rose on Sunday 6th September.

Castleford failed to win any of their eighteen league games last season while being defeated on thirteen occasions - and actually finished next to bottom in the table. However, York only triumphed 2-1 in the corresponding fixture in February, courtesy of leading goalscorer Alicia Smith's brace.

The Minsterbelled then host Whitley Bay seven days later before facing a couple of newcomers in Sheffield United Community (A) and Wetherby Athletic (H).

Prior to those games, the two York sides meet each other in a big League Cup clash on 30th August.

That was despite midfielder Simon Heslop earning them an early fifth-minute lead that was cancelled out by former York defender Tom Allan before the break.

Manager Martin Gray earlier made a single-change from the woeful 4-1 defeat at Curzon Ashton, with goalscorer Alex Kempster given a full debut as replacement for the suspended Jon Parkin. Louis Almon
