Updated 11:47am Thursday 17th July 2014 in By Owen Houlihan
CHIPPENHAM Town will open their 2014-15 Southern Football League Premier Division campaign with a trip to Biggleswade Town on August 9.
Mark Collier's Bluebirds get one of their longest away trips of the season out of the way early as they travel to Bedfordshire to take on the Waders.
Town face a busy opening to their campaign, with a trip to Redditch United two days later on Monday, August 11.
Four of their first five matches are away from home, with a trip to division new boys Dorchester on Tuesday, August 19 after the first home match for Collier's men against Arlesey Town on Saturday, August 16 and a trip to Cambridgeshire's Histon to follow that on August 23.
The Bluebirds host Paulton Rovers on Bank Holiday Monday (August 25) and go to Cirencester Town on September 6.
The Boxing Day match will see Collier's men travel to Paulton for their return fixture, with the Bluebirds hosting Frome Town on New Year's Day and heading for the return on Easter Monday (April 6, 2015).
Frome Town, under the guidance of Adrian Foster, also open their league campaign with a long away trip, this time to Histon, who were relegated from Conference North at the end of last season.
The Robins then make the trip south to face Weymouth on Tuesday, August 11. They host Poole Town on Boxing Day.
