NEWPORT County AFC will start another bid for promotion from Sky Bet League Two next season away to Oldham Athletic on Saturday, August 7.

County’s first home game of the 2021/22 campaign is against Mansfield Town on August 14, before Northampton Town visit Rodney Parade three days later.

There’s a trip to Tranmere Rovers on August 21 and County are on the road again a week later when they round off the first month of the season at Salford City.

Michael Flynn's side are at home to Forest Green Rovers on Boxing Day and end the year in London against Leyton Orient on December 29.

New Year's Day sees County go to Joss Labadie's Walsall, with the regular season ending on May 7 with a home game against Rochdale.

Other fixtures that stand out are former skipper Labadie's return to Rodney Parade with Walsall on September 18, the first of two Severnside derbies with relegated Bristol Rovers on October 23 and a maiden Football League meeting with newly-promoted Sutton United at Rodney Parade on December 7.

Meanwhile, County have been drawn away to Ipswich Town in the first round of next season's Carabao Cup.

The match will take place the week commencing Monday, August 9.

They will also face Swindon Town, Plymouth Argyle and Arsenal U21 in the group stages of the Papa John's Trophy.
