SNCL champions Carlton will launch their bid to become inaugural winners of the CSL Eastern Premier Division with a derby clash at Heriotís.
The star-studded Grange Loan outfit follow that up with a mouth-watering fixture at home to last seasonís runners-up Arbroath.
Other opening day fixtures see Stoneywood-Dyce travel to face Grange while Aberdeenshire are also on the road at Arbroath.
Watsonians, bidding to bounce back from a disappointing 2011 campaign, entertain Forfarshire.
Western Premier Division joint favourites Clydesdale and Uddingston are both at home on the first day of the new season.
Dale will start favourites to make a winning start against Stirling while Uddingston entertain derby rivals Drumpellier.
