Frickley Athletic will start at home when the new Evo-Stik Premier League season gets under way next month.

The Blues will be looking to get off to a flying start as they entertain Ashton United in their opening fixture on Saturday, August 13 (kick-off 3pm).

The first away game quickly follows at Workington on Tuesday, August 16 with another trip the following Saturday to Stafford Rangers.

Home games with Stourbridge (August 23) and Mickleover Sports (August 27) plus a summer Bank Holiday trip to Whitby Town (August 29) follow before the first month is out with Frickley boss Karl Rose keen to start the new season where his side left off last term when finishing in seventh place.

Other highlights of the fixture list include a Christmas Eve game at home to Workington and an away game at Spennymoor Town on Boxing Day.

The first game of 2017 will see the Blues hosting Whitby on Monday, January 2 while the final league match of the season is currently scheduled to be Mickleover away on April 27.

Frickley, meanwhile, continue their preparations this Saturday with their third pre-season game away against Maltby Main (3pm).

They are also in action next Tuesday night when away to Ossett Town, kick-off time to be confirmed.
