New Season Starts With Fleetwood

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 05/07/2011

THE Mariners kick off the new campaign with the visit of one of the pre-season promotion favourites to Cleethorpes. Big-spending Fleetwood Town, who many pundits have tipped to "do a Crawley" this season will provide a tough opener for the Mariners in front of their own fans.

Next up is Essex side Braintree Town (away), who comfortably won the Blue Square South last season, followed by a second tricky away fixture at Newport.

Fixtures with former Football League sides Cambridge, Darlington and Gateshead complete what looks like a tough looking August.

Christmas sees two back to back fixtures with local rivals Lincoln City, the first on Boxing Day at Sincil Bank and the second at Blundell Park on New Year's Day.

Some fixtures are liable to move because of television, but here is the provisional full list.
