THE fixtures are out and the countdown is now truely on until the beginning of the new Coca-Cola League Two Season.

John Coleman’s men open their 2008/09 campaign against Aldershot Town at the Fraser Eagle Stadium on Saturday 9th August followed by a trip to relegated Port Vale on Saturday 16th.

Stanley face local rivals Rochdale on Saturday September 27th at The Frazer Eagel Stadium, with the return fixture being played at Spotland on Saturday 3rd January.

Boxing Day’s festive game this year will be a trip to the Deva Stadium to face up against Chester City.

This year the fixture schedule has changed and so no Football League sides will be playing on New Years day because of the layout of the year meaning that the fixtures would be bunched too close together.

The curtain comes down on the 2008/09 season against Bury on the 2nd May, this time at Gigg Lane.

Full fixture list can be found here at Accrington Stanley’s Official website.
