In a statement released on their website they said “Further discussions have taken place this week between the League and Groundhop UK with regards to the Easter Groundhop and we are delighted to confirm the finalised line-ups and kick off times. A good deal of planning has had to go into this, however, as one of the Country’s leading specialists in this field GHUK have taken account of routes, transport logistics and coach drivers Tachographs to produce what we feel will be a quality line-up for groundhoppers, casuals and club supporters alike.
The Schedule is as follows:
Easter Sunday 16th April
11.30am Ashton Athletic v Squires Gate
3.00pm St Helens Town v City of Liverpool FC
6.30pm Runcorn Town v Barnton
Easter Monday 17th April
11.00am Atherton Collieries v AFC Darwen
2.45pm West Didsbury & Chorlton v Congleton Town

Groundhop UK and the clubs will be in contact with each other over the next couple of months to get the logistics in place for the large numbers expected as preparation takes place for the first of a three year agreement between the League and GHUK.
Speaking of the finished line up, League Development Officer, Gary Langley stated “This is a decent line-up of games in a good order, this is a new venture for us as a League and member clubs so when it came to the logistics it has been an eye opener. Chris Berezai at Groundhop UK has put in a good number of man hours on this and we are sure that the groundhopping community around the Country will come in good numbers for the warm welcome they will undoubtably receive at the clubs as well as the great line-up of games taking place.”
