Royston Town’s first season in the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division will begin at Garden Walk following the release of the fixtures for the new season.

The Crows will face Stratford Town on Saturday, August 12 before travelling to last season’s sparring partners Farnborough on the following Wednesday.

They are away on August Bank Holiday Monday when they go to Hitchin Town with the return fixture coming on Boxing Day.

A trip to Bishop’s Stortford will open 2018 with the return game on Easter Monday at Garden Walk.

Easter Saturday will take Royston to Hereford, who averaged over 2,800 last term at Edgar Street.

The final home game of the season takes place on April 21 with a local derby against Biggleswade Town while a trip to Slough Town brings the curtain down for the year a week later.

Royston’s entry into this year’s FA Trophy will come on October 28 at home to Enfield Town while they are exempt to the first round qualifying of the FA Cup, which will take place on September 2.
