The National League Fixtures kick off this coming Saturday, with 24 clubs competing for the coveted prize of a place in the Football League. The early kick-off, televised on BT Sport, sees Stockport County host Maidenhead United. It’s been nine years since Stockport were last in the Football League but they moved a step closer to a return with their promotion to the National League last season and they can get off to the best possible start here, with a home win at 17/20. Last season’s title race went down to the final week of the season, with Solihull Moors ultimately losing out to Leyton Orient. Solihull will be hoping to go one better this time around and they begin their campaign with a trip to Harrogate Town. This looks a difficult one to call though and many will see the draw as good value at 11/5. Much fancied Chesterfield welcome Dover Athletic to the Proact Stadium and though odds on at 4/5, they will be well backed this weekend. Meanwhile, Notts County, favourites for the title this season, travel to Eastleigh in what has the makings of an entertaining clash. Backing over 2.5 goals could be the go to bet at 21/10. Last season’s losing Promotion Finalists AFC Fylde begin away at Aldershot Town. Manager Dave Challinor has invested in the summer to support main striker Danny Rowe and the addition of Halifax’s Matty Kosylo looks to be a very shrewd one. The Coasters can begin this campaign with a victory on the road at 5/4.
