Enfield Ignatians have outlined their pre-season programme and they will tread a familiar route by playing Saffron Walden on Thursday, August 24.

The Donkey Lane clash kicks-off at 7.45pm and the blue and golds will hope the result will go in their favour.

Last year, Ignatians tangled with the London One North outfit last season at a similar juncture in their preparations.

It was the division higher Saffron Walden who prevailed 19-5 after a keenly-fought contest.

This is the prelude to an away trip to face Norwich on Saturday, September 2.

In what is effectively the final conduit to the London Two North-West league season, Ignatians campaign begins with an away trip to Harrow on Saturday, September 9.

Ignatians have also done some fine-tuning during the summer by taking part in the Finsbury Park Tag Rugby Tournament.

Three wins and a draw propelled them to fourth in the table.

This result came before their eventual defeat in the third-place playoff at the hands of Finsbury Turtles.

Ignatians begin their pre-season training on Tuesday at 7.30 pm where new recruits and can join then.
