Harrogate Town will start their new campaign on the road after being handed a trip to Worcester City on the opening day.

Last season's play-off losers will head south on Saturday, August 6 before a quick turnaround to play at home three days later.

Boston United will be the first team to encounter the new 3G pitch at the CNG Stadium on Tuesday, August 9.

Simon Weaver's men will then welcome relegated Altrincham the following Saturday before away trips to Gainsborough Trinity on Tuesday, August 16 and Bradford Park Avenue on Saturday, August 20.

A busy first month of the season also includes a home test against Nuneaton (August 27) and the second Yorkshire derby of the campaign at FC Halifax Town on Bank Holiday Monday.

The annual festive reverse fixtures will be against Stockport County with the first fixture taking place on Boxing Day at the CNG Stadium before the second away on New Year's Day.
