The Elgin side will make round trips totalling over 3400 miles on their nine away trips to places like Castle Stewart, North Berwick and Greenock.

After winning both the Caledonia League Division 2 and 1 titles in their last two seasons - as well as reaching the National Shield final at Murrayfield - Moray made the step up to the nationwide divisions.

They will make their Division 4 debut on September 7 against Strathmore in Forfar, the shortest of their away trips in the league at a mere 114 miles.

As well as facing 18 tough league games, Moray will take on higher league sides Gordonians and Aberdeen Grammar 1st XV who they have drawn in their National League Cup section.

They kick off their four-team group - Strathmore are also in their section - with their opening match of the 2024-25 season at home to Aberdeen Grammar on Saturday, August 31.

Moray’s longest voyage of the campaign will be on December 7 when they travel the 532-mile round-trip to Castle Douglas to take on Stewartry RC.
