The Harriers avoided a likely banana skin for the opening game of the season when they were given yet another starter at home, this time to Aldershot, on August 11th.
With the Shots being one of the better teams in the League we'll know what to expect and if we lose then it won't be as embarrassing as last seasons opening game when we lost 3-1 at home to a newly promoted St Albans City.
Our remaining games for the month include an easy trip to Stafford the following Tuesday evening and then a slightly longer trip down to Grays the following Saturday, 18th. The first of the big games comes on Bank Holiday Saturday when Stevenage come to visit and I'm sure we'll be seeking an early revenge for that disappointing Trophy defeat.
Bank Holiday Monday see's us off to Rushden for yet another battle with their OTT stewards and ironically we also meet Rushden back here for another holiday fixture on March 24th, Easter Monday.
Our Christmas calendar has us at Forest Green on Boxing Day with the return at Aggborough on New Years Day 2008. In-between we travel over the rolling Cotswolds hills to Oxford on December 29th.
The new, new boys in the League; Droylsden, Farsley Celtic, Salisbury and Histon will pay us visits on September 18th, January 19th, February 23rd and April 12th respectively. While the not so new boy Torquay will be at Aggborough on September 22nd with the return visit on February 9th.
With the Reds by then hoping to be rounding off a successful season with promotion we finish our home campaign with a game against Burton Albion on April 26th and the final game at Woking on May 3rd.
Could there be a repeat of our celebrations at Kingfield in 2000 when we gained our promotion to the League under Jan Molby. We can only hope.
