In a move sure to please mileage-conscious members of the #CheetahPride, BAFA have revealed that the Hertfordshire Cheetahs senior squad will be playing the 2020 season in the SFC 1 East.
Opponents include familiar foes the Wembley Stallions, as well as a number of opponents more local to St Albans than has been the case in recent years.
The full SFC 1 East:
Senior Head Coach Craig Barnes was pleased with the move, saying:
“I am delighted at the decision to realign the Cheetahs to the SFC1 East. Our travelling time for games has plummeted compared to last year, we get to reacquaint ourselves with some old foes, and address some unfinished business with Wembley. Whilst I will miss our friends at Portsmouth, I look forward to pitting our wits against the old-school offences in the East. We can’t wait!”
With the full schedule of fixtures some way from being released, the Cheetahs can now focus on getting to know their opponents and preparing themselves for the season ahead.
