CONFIRMED

The 2019/20 season sees the return of Leyton Orient and Salford City playing their first ever campaign in the Football League

Salford City have discovered their first ever English Football League opponents, with Graham Alexander’s side to take on Stevenage on the opening day of the 2019/20 League Two season.

The Ammies, who are co-owned by Manchester United’s Class of ’92, booked their place in the EFL last month by beating Fylde 3-0 in the National League play-off final, after finishing the season third.

They begin their adventure in the fourth tier by kicking off the entire League Two season with the 12:30pm clash, with the other opening day matches getting under way at 3pm.

Salford were promoted alongside National League winners Leyton Orient, who start their 2019/20 campaign with the visit of Cheltenham to Brisbane Road.

Orient are back in the EFL after two years in non-league, though the man who got them there, Justin Edinburgh, tragically died just weeks after the east Londoners won promotion.

His assistant, Ross Embleton, was earlier this week named Orient’s interim head coach so will be in the dugout for the opening day clash.

Plymouth, Walsall, Scunthorpe, and Bradford are all playing in the fourth tier in 2019/20 having been relegated from League One at the end of last season, and they start against Crewe, Northampton, Swindon and Cambridge United respectively.
