Here a thread for the Hoofdklasse, 4th level, the definite groups are known some days...
Jodan Boys (Gouda)
Quick Boys (Katwijk aan Zee)
Scheveningen (Den Haag)
Ter Leede (Sassenheim)
Young Boys (Haarlem)
Big favourites here of course giants Quick Boys who definitely will promote to Topklasse asap. Young Boys are very ambitious while last season Hoofdklassers like Noordwijk, Zwaluwen and Scheveningen normally challenge for the title too.
Especially Scheveningen, they've signed Sjakie Polak
Kozakken Boys (Werkendam)
Big favourites for me are here Kozakken Boys and ASWH. There's a nice Ridderkerk derby for what it's worth (got no clue) while DTS'35 joined as last one as lucky loser after ARC's Topklasse-playoff win over Be Quick 1887.
Drachtster Boys (Drachten)
Oranje Nassau (Groningen)
The east region, nice to see some big clubs like DETO and Drachtster Boys back at a reasonable level. Two Oranje Nassau's in here as well.
Favourites? Hard to say, I'd bet on ACV or WHC I think.
Alphense Boys (Alphen a/d Rijn)
FC Chabab (Amsterdam)
SC Feyenoord (Rotterdam)
HBS (Den Haag)
JOS / Watergraafsmeer (Amsterdam)
De Zouaven (Grootebroek)
Also here some traditional sides are back like DHC with their beautifull ground.
No clue about favourties, it's the former Zondag A of course where I knew nothing about, but I'd say Westlandia for the title here.
Blauw Geel'38 (Veghel)
De Valk (Valkenswaard)
UDI 19 (Uden)
Here we find the only two (!) Hoofdklasse clubs from Limburg
. Papendrecht won't be happy with this group as they're the only one from Zuid-Holland among only teams from Brabant, and two from Limburg, and ok, one from Gelderland.
Deurne are back and I think immediately a favourite for the title. Also interesting to see will be what Dongen can do after their brilliant cup win from a few weeks ago.
Be Quick 1887 (Groningen)
NEC amateurs (Nijmegen)
Clear favourites here are of course Be Quick 1887 and WKE who both want asap to Topklasse. It's a strong group with HSC'21 included as well. As for the rest there's a nice derby in Meppel and a huge geographical spreading from Nijmegen to Leeuwarden.

My favourite Hoofdklasse team is Venray but I don't expect miracles from them, hope to see some nice derbies although most are unknown for me so I don't know really which ones are exciting to visit.
