TAUNTON Town will begin their bid for promotion from Evo-Stik South West with a trip to Cirencester on Saturday, August 12.

The fixture list, which has been released this morning, then pits the Peacocks against Mangotsfield for their first home game at the Viridor Stadium on Tuesday, August 15.

The home FA Cup tie against Larkhall Athletic follows on August 19, and the first month of the season ends with a quickfire double away at Shortwood (August 26) and at home to Paulton Rovers (August 28).

Leigh Robinson's side face their first meeting with likely promotion rivals Salisbury on December 9 at the Viridor, and the trip to face Steve Claridge's men is on March 17.

The festive period is typically busy, with Town's home clash with Cirencester on December 23 quickly followed by a Boxing Day trip to Paulton and the visit of Bideford on New Year's Day.

The trip to North Devon to face Bideford is on Monday, April 2, while Taunton host Barnstaple on November 11 with the reverse fixture taking place on January 20.

Town's final home game of the regular season is against Bristol Manor Farm on April 21, and the curtain comes down on the league campaign at Cinderford a week later.
