After 12 years away from non-league’s top flight, Whites will start the season on home turf against a side which finished 5th in Conference Premier last season – losing to Cambridge United in the play-offs.
Old rivalries will be renewed with Jamie Day’s Welling United on Boxing Day (H) and New Years Day (A). Our August and Easter Bank Holiday Monday fixtures are against Woking.
Travelling supporters will be relieved that only one long distance trip is currently scheduled for a weekday evening, playing at Nuneaton Town on Tuesday 7th October. Whites will end the season at Forest Green Rovers on Saturday 25th April.
