The Spring Spectacular at Armadale will feature the Staggs Bar Monarchs against Premiership side Wolverhampton Wolves on the opening night of the 2019 season on Friday, April 12 (7:30pm).

Wolves are amongst the leading sides in the top division this season and have a tremendous array of star names.

The night will be organised as a charity fundraiser for Cancer Research with a collection being held on the evening.

Wolverhampton promoter Chris Van Straaten finalised the details with Monarchs’ chairman Alex Harkess at the Ben Fund Bonanza event.

He said “Monarchs and the Wolves have had a close relationship over a very long period.”

A Monarchs spokesman said: “Wolves won’t bring every one of their stars but a glance at their septet for the new season shows why they are fancied for honours.

“We will be announcing their team in due course, but it is sure to be a considerable test for the new Monarchs’ squad.”

Fans can whet their appetite for the new season at the 2019 Season Launch Show at Edinburgh Napier Craiglockhart on Friday, April 5.
