King's Lynn Town to host Yeovil Town in first National League game of the season

More news, no ads


King’s Lynn Town have been handed a home game to mark their first ever campaign in the National League.

Ian Culverhouse's side will entertain last season's beaten play-off semi-finalists Yeovil Town on Saturday October 3 at The Walks.

Lynn will then travel to both Maidenhead United and Solihull Moors in the first week of the season.

But perhaps the biggest boost on the fixture calendar is a mouth-watering home Boxing Day clash against Notts County.

The return fixture at Meadow Lane is on January 2, with a trip to Chesterfield in between on December 28.

King's Lynn travel to Wrexham - the club whom chairman Stephen Cleeve tried to buy a few years back - on the penultimate game of the season in May.

On the fixture release, King's Lynn Town general manager Mark Hearle said: "The reality of the league and company we are now keeping really hits home when you take a look at the fixtures.

"Yeovil at home on the opening day is still huge despite the restrictions we will be facing when we begin the season, against a team who made the play-offs last season.

"Notts County's Boxing Day visit is the stuff of dreams really and at that stage hopefully we will be allowed some more people into The Walks to see it.

"There are also some long trips but if you are doing the miles it shows we are playing at a very high level."
