NEWPORT County will kick off the 2022/23 League Two season away to Sutton United.

The Exiles will make the 280-mile round trip on Saturday, July 30.

The first home match at Rodney Parade will be the following weekend (August 6), when Walsall - led by former County manager Michael Flynn - visit.

County will play 19 of their league fixtures before a break in mid-November for the World Cup.

That run of games includes three matches in a week, when James Rowberry's side take on Colchester United at home, followed by away trips to Mansfield and Northampton Town between October 21 and 29.

The World Cup break will be bookended by a home tie with Gillingham on November 19 and an away fixture at Crewe on December 3.

This season's Boxing Day match will be away to AFC Wimbledon, who were relegated from League One last year.

That is followed by a home clash with Leyton Orient on December 29, and on New Year's Day County will welcome Crawley Town to Rodney Parade.

The end of the season could be a tough one - the Exiles play their final three matches against teams relegated from League One at the end of last season.

They'll face Doncaster Rovers and Gillingham away on April 22 and 29, respectively.

County's final game of the season will be at home to Crewe Alexandra on May 6.
