Although King's Lynn Town manager Simon Clark is more concerned about how his side perform on the pitch, he admits that his side have been handed a testing start to the new season.
The Linnets open their campaign at home to Biggleswade on Saturday, August 11, before trips to both Kettering Town and Tamworth, who were relegated from National North last season, in the space of four days.
A difficult start is continued when Lynn entertain Stourbridge, where they will end their first campaign in the new set up, at The Walks on September 1.
A mouth-watering festive programme sees Lowestoft visit Lynn on December 26th - their first Boxing Day visit since 1908 - followed by the small matter of Kettering on home soil three days later.
Reflecting on the fixture release, Clark said: "They are all big games but we will be fit and ready to go.
"People say that you need four, five or six games to get going once the season starts but I don't necessarily believe that.
"It makes our pre-season even more important than what it already is as we want to make a bright start in the league.
"We will need to be prepared as the fixtures don't give us any room for not being ready. One thing we don't want to do is drop any early points against some of our rivals.
"The one thing I will say is that there will be grass on the pitch at Burton Latimer (Kettering's home ground) which will allow us to get the ball down and play.
"There have been a lot of changes in personnel at both Biggleswade and Tamworth but they will still be very difficult games."
