The Exiles are scheduled to play five pre-season friendlies against EFL and Non-League opposition before the new season gets underway, with County’s campaign set to kick-off with a Sky Bet League Two first-round match on Saturday 7th August.
All five fixtures will be played in line with the Government’s guidelines due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Michael Flynn’s side kick off their preparations for the new season with a visit to JD Cmyru South ( Tier 2 ) side Undy AFC on Friday 9th July following their pre-season training camp.
New signing Daniel Grimshaw has been discussing his hopes for the upcoming campaign, following his switch from Manchester City. The goalkeeper said: “It was a good experience playing (on loan) in Belgium (with Lommel).
“I needed to get some game time and it was a good experience off the pitch too, getting out of my comfort zone and being away from my family for the first time.
“I’m happy and very excited (for the new seasons). I can’t wait to get going. The aim is to come and work hard every day with the keepers that are already here and learn off each other.
“I’ve played against Neil Critchley’s teams before when he was with Liverpool. It will be good to work with (goalkeeping coach) Steve Banks as well.”
Meanwhile, the club are currently undergoing an intense training camp in Edinburgh, as they look to get fully match fit for the new season.
