FLEETWOOD Town start their second season in the Blue Square Bet Premier with a visit to Grimsby Town on August 13.

Town, who did the double over the Mariners last season, face another North-East club, Darlington, in their first home match of the campaign three days later.

The derbies against Southport are set for the festive season, at Highbury on Boxing Day and at Haig Avenue on New Year’s Day.

Stockport County visit Town on November 19 following relegation from the Football League.

today’s fixtures date has been ringed in Town boss Micky Mellon’s diary all summer but it looked until last night as though there may be a delay.

The Football Conference had warned their publication would be put back at least until tomorrow as a result of Rushden & Diamonds’ appeal, which the FA was due to hear today, against their demotion from the Blue Square Bet Premier for financial reasons.

However, the Northamptonshire club last night withdrew its appeal, meaning Southport have been reinstated despite finishing in the relegation zone last season.
