The first month of the campaign will be a busy one for the Vikings for they are tasked with playing seven league games and a possible FA Vase side, and all inside 25 days!

After the visit of the student outfit, Town face a midweek trip to Newton Abbot Spurs, then a Saturday visit to Dartmouth before another midweek trip, a Tuesday night visit to Cullompton Rangers.

Saturday, September 19, is set aside for FA Vase ties and then, in the following midweek Town host Axminster Town in a derby game under the Manstone Lane floodlights. The final Saturday of September sees Town in action at Brixham and they end a busy first month with a Saturday home game against Torridgeside.

Town’s festive fixture is a Boxing Day morning Manstone Lane East Devon derby with Honiton Town and the return with the Hippos will be on Good Friday (April 2).
