Saffron Walden Town has announced the full slate of pre-season fixtures ahead of their first campaign in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division.
July 7 vs Chelmsford City- 7.45pm kick-off.
July 11 vs Histon - 3pm
July 18 @ Bungay Town - 3pm
July 21 vs Cambridge City - 7.45pm
July 25 @ Takeley - 3pm
August 1 @ Diss Town - 3pm.
The Bloods have lined up six friendlies as they look to capitalise on last season’s dramatic last day promotion from the First Division and hit the ground running.
Stuart Wardley starts pre-season with the toughest test, against Mark Hawkes’ Chelmsford City at Catons Lane on July 7.
The National League South side will be the highest level opposition the Bloods face before the season starts.
The teams squared off last season in a game that ended in a 2-2 draw.
Walden entertain Histon four days later before going on the road for the first time when they travel to Bungay Town.
Evo-Stik Southern League side Cambridge City will provide another stern test on July 21 before the Bloods wrap up pre-season with two away games, at Takeley and Diss Town.
The season begins in earnest on August 9, although the league is yet to release the fixtures.
The club is looking to appoint a new reserve team coach. See the Bloods’ website for details.
