Gillingham will start their League Two campaign with a home clash against Cheltenham Town.

The Gills started last season at home to Swindon, who are also called the Robins, and will hope that is not a sign of what is to come.

To further add to that, the Gills also faced Cheltenham – at Whaddon Road – on the opening day three years ago – a season that also ended in relegation.

The first away game is at Hereford, while a home game with Lincoln and a trip to Morecambe round off the opening month.

The Gills will face former boss Mark Stimson’s Barnet away on November 23 and at home on April 23, which is part of a very friendly run-in at Priestfield, with Accrington, Hereford, Morecambe and Macclesfield also visiting Kent in the last five home matches.

It’s Aldershot away on Boxing Day, Port Vale at home two days later and Stevenage at Priestfield on New Year’s Day.

The season ends – as is now traditional for the Gills – away from home, with a trip to face Chesterfield – the tenth time in 13 seasons that the Gills have ended their season on the road.
