Crusaders hit the road on opening day of the season

HUNGERFORD Town will travel to St Albans City on the opening day of the Vanarama National League South season.

Ian Herring will take his side to face the Saints when their campaign gets underway on August 4 - three days before their first home game of the year.

The Crusaders welcome back former manager Bobby Wilkinson as Wealdstone are the visitors to Bulpit Lane on August 7.

Former Town players James Clark, Rhys Tyler and Stefan Brown have all joined Wilkinson in West London and it'll no doubt be an interesting affair.

Speaking to NWN last week, Herring said: "We knew it was going to be tough, whoever we played.

"But it's nice to actually see the fixture list and see who we are playing and when."

Hungerford have back-to-back home games over the Christmas period as both Oxford City and Truro City head to Bulpit Lane in the space of three days.

The Crusaders will finish their league campaign with yet another clash against East Thurrock United - the team they beat last year to maintain their league status.
