With the draw for the 2015/16 season made earlier today the Harriers have been handed a mouthwatering opening game against last seasons beaten finalists Grimsby Town on August 8th. That will mean a quick return for the former fans favourite Josh Gowling who officially joined them at the end of last season after being with them on loan for a few weeks.
That game could well be considered for featuring on TV but would then mean the date changing to the preceding day.
Our second game will be away at Dover on the Tuesday evening (11th) and will also feature us coming up against another former player after Jamie Grimes signed for the South coast club in May. We travel to Leeds the following weekend for a return to a club we have played once before in the FA Trophy in December 2007. That team was Guiseley.
Our August Bank holiday game will be away at relegated Tranmere Rovers and also for the return game on Easter Monday. On the other big holiday dates we'll be at home to the other relegated team, Cheltenham, on Boxing Day with the New Years Day game down there. We'll be getting used to the M5 by then because we'll be at FGR on the preceding Saturday, the 28th.
The season will either come to an end in a shower of glory, or a demoralising end at Southport on April 30th. No doubt with a late kick off to boot.
