League new boys start with home ties

Fleetwood Town begin life in the Football League with a home fixture against Torquay after the League Two fixtures for 2012-13 were released.


Town, promoted from the Conference Premier as champions, meet defeated play-off semi-finalists Torquay on the weekend of Saturday August 18 as the new season of Football League action commences.

They are joined in the fourth tier from non-league by York City, who mark their return to the field of 92 by welcoming Wycombe Wanderers, relegated from League One after one season, to Bootham Crescent.

Chesterfield, who were also relegated in May, head to Kingsmeadow to face AFC Wimbledon.

Exeter City and Rochdale, the other two sides coming down from the third tier, begin their quests for an immediate return with home fixtures against Morecambe and Northampton Town respectively.

Cheltenham Town, who were defeated by Crewe in the Wembley play-off final, play host to Dagenham and Redbridge.
