The Football Conference have confirmed that they’ve agreed with BT Sport to cover 3 games live on television. Some good games in there as well. How will Bristol Rovers cope with relegation and will Grimsby finally have a good season to get promoted from non league football, will we get any indication from the opening game of the season at the Memorial Ground? Then we have the Hampshire derby, between newly promoted Eastleigh Aldershot Town. We finish the month with another chance to look at Bristol Rovers as they climb the big hill to the New Lawn to play Forest Green Rovers.
- Saturday 9 August – Bristol Rovers v Grimsby Town – kick-off 12.45pm
- Thursday 14 August – Eastleigh v Aldershot Town – kick-off 7.45pm.
- Monday 25 August – Forest Green Rovers v Bristol Rovers – kick-off at 12noon
One other fixture is subject to change due the coverage of the Eastleigh v Shots game, and that is the AFC Telford game will move from the Saturday to Sunday 17th August.
The Conference and BT Sport will announce further matches in due course.
