HAVANT & WATERLOOVILLE and Lowestoft Town will both begin their Ryman Premier campaigns on the road following the release of the league’s fixtures on Friday morning.
The Hawks were relegated from the National League South last season while Lowestoft suffered the drop from the North and both will be hoping to get off to good starts on Saturday, August 13.
But both have been handed tricky opening day trips with Havant travelling to Leiston and Lowestoft heading down to Bognor Regis Town.
In the Ryman North, both promoted clubs will start their Step 4 seasons away from home; Norwich United heading to Great Wakering Rovers while Bowers & Pitsea will go to VCD Athletic.
Lewes, who suffered relegation from the Ryman Premier, kick off their Ryman South campaign away at Chipstead and ambitious Greenwich Borough, promoted from the Southern Counties East League, start out at Dorking Wanderers.
