The Harriers kick off their first, and hopefully last, season back in the Conference with a home game against old foes Woking. We couldn't have hoped for a better opening game that this one and it should see a decent sized crowd with a fair share travelling up from Surrey. The game on Saturday August 13th will kick off at 3:00pm.
Three days later, Tuesday, and we travel down the M5 to Exeter City, the scene of one of our greatest triumphs back in February 2003 when we thrashed the home side 2 - 5. Report here.
The following weekend, 20th, and it's back on the road again to Scarborough and high hopes of some sunny weather and three points as well. August Bank Holiday sees us hit old haunts when we zoom up the A14 to Cambridge and a clash of the relegated sides at a troubled Utd. That's if they're still in existence.
The long awaited clash of the Harriers v Bulls will be at the end of October on the 29th at Aggborough, not as both sets of fans had hoped, over the Christmas period. Police advice is thought to be the reason for that and the fact that they would rather not be paying overtime rates for high profile policing over Christmas.
The return clash at Edgar St will be on March 25th and instead our festive games will be against Altrincham, home on Boxing Day and away for the New Year on January 2nd.
Local games against Forest Green, who today signed Ian Foster on a two year deal, will be on September 17th (H) and March 4th (A) with Tamworth coming to Aggborough on October 1st and us going over there on February 18th. we travel to Burton Albions new ground on November 26th with them coming to us a month later during the Christmas period on New Years Eve.
The season will draw to a victorious?? close on April 29th with a home game against Accrington Stanley.
