CHESTER face a trip to Solihull Moors on the opening day of the 2017/18 season after the National League fixtures were released today.

Jon McCarthy’s side begin the campaign away at Damson Park on Saturday, August 5, before back-to-back home fixtures against newly-promoted AFC Fylde and Halifax on Tuesday, August 8 and Saturday August 12.

A long trip to Hartlepool follows on Tuesday, August 15, before a home clash with Sutton United on August 19.

The eagerly aniticipated cross-border derby clashes against Wrexham are scheduled for November 11 (home) and March 10 (away) while the Blues face will face Guiseley on Boxing Day (home) and New Year’s Day (away).

The Blues face rivals Tranmere Rovers away on October 7 before the reverse fixture on April 7.

However, Tuesday night trips to Hartlepool, Gateshead and Leyton Orient are unlikely to be received well by club officials and fans alike. The season concludes on April 28 with an away trip to Barrow.
