Both teams were promoted to the National North Division for the first time last season. The match at the Bee Arena will take place on Saturday, August 6.

“It's a tough start,” Sports manager Jimmy Dean said. “Buxton have taken the old Chorley manager who is very good, but then every fixture can look tough. They look exciting as well.”

Sports have some fantastic fixtures to look forward to with former Football League club Chester in town on August 20 and probable promotion favourites King’s Lynn visiting on Bank Holiday Monday August 29.

Sports have juicy back-to-back derbies over the festive period as they host Kettering on Boxing Day before travelling to face the Poppies on New Years Day.

There’s a lot of travelling for Sports this season and they have an early Tuesday trip to Gloucester City (August 16) and also visit Bradford Park Avenue, Scarborough and Curzon Ashton for midweek matches.
