Kendal Town will start their Northern Premier League North West Division campaign with a trip to Precot Cables on Saturday September 19.

The Mintcakes haven't played a competitive game since the league's up and down the country were halted back in March due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

However Chris Humphrey's men have enjoyed a good pre-season and now have the clarity of the fixture list they have been waiting for.

Their first competitive match will come on September 12, when they entertain Bishops Aukland or Hall Road Rangers in the preliminary qualifying round of the FA Cup.

Then the league action kicks in with a trip to Prescot, before they face possibly two more cup matches.

If they progress next Saturday, Humphrey's men will potentially face the first qualifying round proper on September 23, followed by the first qualifying round of the FATrophy.

September will end with a home clash with City of Liverpol FC, followed by the visit of Mossley to Parkside Road on October 3.

Two tough trips to Trafford and Pickering Town will follow in October, with a tough schedule at the end of the month comprising of three league games in 11 days.

First will be a trip to Ramsbottom United, before home games against Runcorn Linnets and Tadcaster Albion.

A trip to Clitheroe and a home game against Ossett United will follow in November, along with a trip to Brighouse Town.

The fixtures throughout the early months of the season could be impacted if the club progress in both the FA Cup and the FA Trophy.

Kendal will host Marine in the last game before Christmas, before a Boxing Day trip to Colne and a New Years Day trip to Widnes.

A busy January will see Dunston and Pickering Town visit Parkside Road, before the short trip to Workington on the last fixture of the month.

Ramsbottom will visit the Mintcakes on February 6, before consecutive trips to Dunston, Tadcaster Albion and Ossett United.

Clitheroe and Bridghouse will travel to face Humphrey's men in March, before a busy April comprising of five games.

April 3 will see a trip to Mossley, before Colne visit the Mintcakes.

They will then travel to City of Liverpool FC, before a home clash with Prescot Cables and an away trip to Marine.

May will begin with a home clash against Pontefract Colleries, before Kendal travel to Widnes in the second to last game of the campaign, before the season ends with a home game against Trafford.

It was expected that the season would begin behind closed doors, but thanks to pressure on the Government from officials in the non-league game and members of parliament, non-league grounds, such as Parkside Road, can welcome up to 300 fans providing measures are in place. That, along with the releasing of the fixtures, comes as a welcome boost to the club ahead of the season.
