National league fixtures announced

National League fixtures announced

The newly named National League have released the fixtures for the 2015/16 season and there are a number of intriguing matches on the opening weekend of the season.

Tranmere Rovers begin life in non-league at home as they welcome Woking to Prenton Park, while the other club relegated from SkyBet League Two, Cheltenham Town, face a trip to another former Football League club Lincoln City.

Newly installed Gateshead boss Malcolm Crosby begins his reign with a tricky looking trip to Aldershot Town and last year’s beaten play-off finalists Grimsby Town head to Kidderminster Harriers.

Three of the newly promoted sides have been handed home ties. Barrow entertain Dover Athletic, meaning their visitors face a 740 mile round trip on the opening day of the season.

Boreham Wood and Bromley face FC Halifax Town and Wrexham respectively.

The only promoted side to be handed an away tie on the opening day of the season is Guiseley, as they head to Welling United.

In the National League North FC United of Manchester will begin their first ever season at step two with a trip to Gloucester City. Last year’s FA Trophy winners North Ferriby United head to Tamworth, while Chorley begin life under Matt Jansen with a home fixture against Kevin Wilson’s Nuneaton.

Curzon Ashton welcome ambitious Corby Town as two newly promoted sides clash on the opening day.

In the National League South there is also an opening day fixture between two newly promoted sides as Margate entertain Truro City.

Maidstone United begin life in step two with a visit to Sutton United.
