With the fixtures due to be released next Wednesday (5/7) it's time to make your prediction of our opponents for the first match!
Same rules as the cup/trophy compo - the winner is the one who predicts closest to our actual opponents according to GoogleMaps.
eg if we end up with Tonbridge then LB's prediction of Chelmsford is closer than Luton Roman's of Truro. No need to predict home or away.

Not ideal for cash flow sadly. Yeovil home on the FA Cup Saturday will likely be a winter midweek too.

The fixtures secretary has provided us with the usual mixed bag of highs and lows.
As predicted, cramming the 46 games into an even shorter season means an extra evening fixture. But at least 5 of those 9 are at home.
Most of those Tuesday evening games are against west country clubs but for the second season running we've been paired with Hemel - round trips of over 200 miles.
The club will be pleased that the Torquay match is on a Saturday but that may well be the only afternoon 'local derby' apart from Weymouth on Good Friday. I can't see Weston, Truro or Taunton bringing that many for evening fixtures so it will be up to City fans to swell the gate - remember we keep being told how attractive these opponents are!
We couldn't have been given a harder pair of opening fixtures and with the trip to play off runners up St Albans also in August hopefully we're not relying on a win against Weston or Hampton to open our account. I've booked train tickets for Dartford but second up Eastbourne is a real slog (despite meeting up with our friend Kevin) and it's a pity St Albans is on a bank holiday.
November looks pretty daunting with three midweek fixtures scheduled - those who think large squads are overrated might change their mind after that!
Oh and the prediction table will be up asap...

Congrats to Dave and Kermit who share the prestigious title for the next 12 months. But remember that this is a preseason friendly compo and the serious stuff starts in September with the return of the award winning Cup/Trophy predictions league.

This is why I played the trialists in this competition.
