Scarborough Athletic will kick off their Evo-Stik North campaign with a home fixture against Hyde United.

This will mean an immediate christening for Boro's new Flamingo Land Stadium base, in a game that takes place on August 12.

That fixture will be followed by an away trip to Ossett Town on Tuesday August 15.

Boro will entertain newly-promoted South Shields on Bank Holiday Monday August 28, with the return leg taking place in the north east on New Year's Day.

In the other festive fixture, Boro willl play host to derby rivals Tadcaster Albion on Boxing Day.

Steve Kittrick's side close their campaign with another home fixture, this game will be against Ossett Albion.

Boss Kittrick said: "It isn't an easy start, but it never is because teams are always jockeying for positions in the early weeks.

"Hyde have recruited well, they play on 3G and they were one of the form teams along with us at the end of last season.

"I know their manager Darren Kelly and I know that they will be hard to beat.

"The second game against Ossett will also be a tough one, you only have to look at last season's play-off semi-final."
