Opening - Truro away - 2 reasons, lets get on and enjoy the best adventure of the season first. Whilst the weather is at its best in August. Don't want that fixture in February when their grass pitch is soggy and waterlogged, couldn't face travelling there for it to be postponed!

Boxing Day - Heard a few weeks ago we asked to be paired with Worthing. Would prefer it at home on boxing day if we are paired with them as it's a bit depressing travelling down on what is usually a grey cold day and most shops are shut etc. Worthing away will be better on a midweek evening with a crackling atmosphere under the floodlights 

Easter Double Header - Maidstone. The only opponents who could potentially bring 800/900 away fans to us all season, they've brought that many before when the fixture has been on a good date, whereas when we played Maidstone on a freezing midweek in December their turnout was paltry.

Final Day - it's wherever you want the trophy lift and the post match promotion party - so a home game - preferably someone who isn't likely to beat us, so Tonbridge at home would be fine!

Assuming all of the above are wrong, could we just have away games at Torquay, Weston, Weymouth and Truro in August!! Bucket and spade time!

We lost home and away to Tonbridge in our NLS promotion season!

Truro away to start with it is!

Quite a tricky start with games against fellow promotions rivals such as Boreham Wood, Torquay United, St Albans, Aveley. A fair bit of travel to start with as well with Truro, Torquay, Weston, Eastbourne all in August/September.

Both Maidstone and Boreham Wood games are midweek which is interesting. We have a less than ideal Monday night trip to Hemel in there as well as a Monday night at Aveley.

Chesham at home on the final day will be trickier than people expect as well due to the signings they've made over the Summer so far.

Very pleased with the fixture list

3 seaside trips on weekends in August!

Best fans awayday trip (in my opinion) first day, we get to christen the new stadium!

Home boxing day

Home last day

No really long evening midweek trips

DW have even done a ticket bundle with a discount to woo the floating fans

I could get to like this division!

Good to see club have listened to feedback and reduced match day prices for this season. Not too sure how many games I will go to before January, as a lot of them clash with Crawley games (trying to go to local away games as well  this year).

11/3 - Maidstone (A) - 4th last season / promotion rival

15/3 - Torquay United (H) - promotion rival

22/3 - Boreham Wood (A) - promotion rival

29/3 - Eastbourne Borough (H) - play off side

5/4 - St Albans City (A) - play off side

12/4 - Bath City (A) - 6th last season

18/4 - Hampton & Richmond (H) - 9th last season

21/4 - Worthing (A) - 3rd last season / promotion rival

I hope that Marc's confidence (ie that our squad for this season is better than the one we last went up with) that we have enough to win this league and that we'll not be out the top 3 all season is well placed
