Players' reaction to new fixture list

21 June 2017

Earlier today the fixture list for the 2017/18 season was released, you can see the full list here.

We asked members of the first team squd what their initial reactions were and which games they were most looking forward to...

Initial reactions:

Kev Dawson - I'm delighted it's finally out to be honest, it gets the excitement levels raised again and makes me look forward to gettin back to pre season even more!

Harry Pell - Getting very excited now! I'm really looking forward to the season, the summer is practically over and we need a good start! 

Will Boyle - Finally! It's good to get a look at what we've got to look forward to for the coming season and the first five games look a great challenge. Already looking forward to heading up to the Globe arena and kicking it all back off again. 

Aaron Downes - Happy to get a few long trips out of the way early on. Happy to be at home Boxing Day and a few "winnable" games early in the season to hopefully get us off to a good start.

Kyle Storer - It is a challenging start but one that we are going to relish.


Which game are you most looking forward to?

Kev Dawson - The obvious fixture I looked for was Yeovil, we play them five or six games in and with the reverse fixture on Boxing Day it's great.

Harry Pell - It has to be the Grimsby and Forest Green fixtures.

Will Boyle - The Forest Green game is obviously one to look forward to in November at their place. I'm looking forward to heading to the Ricoh as well to face Coventry in December who have are a club with a decent history. 

Aaron Downes - There's a few, Chesterfield away because of my connections there, FGR at home to resume "El Glosico" and Swindon home and away because of a local derby.

Kyle Storer - The two games against Coventry obviously as my home town club but the one away from home especially as lots of my friends and family will be present.
