Brackley Town will start their 2013/14 Conference North campaign with the four-hour away trip to Barrow AFC on Saturday, August 17.

It will be a stiff test for Jon Brady’s side, who came agonisingly close to promotion last season, with Barrow having just come down from the Conference Premier.

On Boxing Day, Saints will host Leamington before travelling to the Warwickshire side six days later on New Year’s Day, while on August Bank Holiday, Brackley travel to Oxford City with the reverse fixture at St James’ Park on Easter Monday.

Other notable home fixtures include AFC Telford on October 12, Guiseley January 4, Solihull Moors February 1 and Stockport County on April 12.

Brady’s side begin their pre-season campaign in 11 days when MK Dons visit St James’ Park on Tuesday, July 17.

Full pre-season fixtures: AFC Rushden & Diamonds (A), July 20; Biggleswade Town (A), July 23; Forest Green Rovers (H), July 27; Rugby Town (A), July 30; Farnborough (H), August 3; Bedworth (A), August 6; Dover Athletic (H), August 10.
