Daventry Town will kick off the new Southern League Division One Central campaign with a Communications Park clash against Uxbridge on August 9.

The early fixtures have been kind to Darran Foster’s men, as three of Town’s first four games are on home soil.

The Uxbridge match is swiftly followed by a midweek home date with St Ives Town on August 12, before a trip to Potters Bar on August 16, and then another Communications Park date against Marlow on August 19.

The first big derby of the season is on August Bank Holiday Monday and sees Daventry travel Burton Latimer to take on rivals Kettering Town, with the Poppies due to make the return trip to Daventry on Boxing Day.

The New Year matches see Daventry on the road though, as they go to Bedworth on New Year’s Day and Aylesbury on January 3.

Daventry’s traditional derby dates, against Rugby Town, are on September 9 at Butlin Road and April 18 at Daventry, which is the penulitmate league game of the campaign.

Daventry, who were beaten by Kettering in the semi-final of the play-offs last season, wrap up their campaign with a trip to Godalming Town.
