The Hellenic League have announced that over the Easter weekend it will be possible to watch twelve Hellenic League games over 12 days. Featuring five Premier League games, two Division 1 West games, one Divsion 1 East game, two Division Two East games and two Division Two West games there’s something to satisfy any non-league fan.

Organised by Chris Berzai of Groundhop UK these events have been popular with ground-hoppers across the United Kingdom so Hellenic clubs may expect some bumper crowds over Easter.

It all kicks off on Maundy Thursday evening in Almondsbury as Malmesbury Victoria are the visitors. Good Friday sees an early start for Reading City as they face Longlevens at high noon. Windsor face Lydney Town the same day followed by Newent Town at home to Cheltenham Saracens.

In the east there’s an opportunity to attend matches at Stokenchurch, Chinnor and Long Crendon on Easter Saturday. Long Crendon have been playing home matches at Oxford City this season, but it is expected they will return to their own Long Crendon ground for this match.

Easter Sunday is another set of matches in the west with Bourton Rovers, Moreton Rangers and (a real Hellenic favourite ground of many) Brimscombe & Thrupp hosting matches. On Easter Monday there are two games with Bishops Cleeve at 11am and Tuffley Rovers at 2:15pm hosting Hellenic Premier matches.
