King’s Lynn Town have been handed a rip-roaring home game to start their second campaign in the National League.

The Linnets will host Southend United, relegated from League Two last season, on Saturday, August 21, in what is expected to attract a bumper gate to The Walks .

Lynn make the long trip to Yeovil – the side they hosted in front of the BT Sport cameras on the opening day of last season’s campaign –a week later before a home game against Chesterfield on August 30.

The fixture list – released at 1pm today – has also given them a bumper festive season game at home to Notts County on Boxing Day with a trip to Chesterfield on January 2, sandwiching a trip to Grimsby Town on December 28.

Another relegated team, Grimsby, will be at The Walks on April 18, a Bank Holiday Monday, while the last game of the campaign will see Lynn travel to Wealdstone.

Ian Culverhouse’s side begin their pre-season schedule by hosting League One MK Dons next Tuesday (7pm) before welcoming Premier League Norwich City to The Walks three days later on the Friday.
