FC Halifax Town will travel to Ebbsfleet United for the opening game of the new season tomorrow.

The Shaymen are under new management with Pete Wild taking charge of his first competitive game since his arrival last week following the departure of Jamie Fullarton earlier in pre-season.

The former Oldham boss was in charge on Tuesday night for his first game as Town boss and saw his new side beat his former side 1-0 at Boundary Park in the final pre-season game.

There will no doubt be debutants on show for the Shaymen this weekend with a number of last year’s squad departing and new ones arriving.

Former Accrington Stanley midfielder Liam Nolan signed his deal on the 1st August and will be in the squad for the game.

Town have also signed former Dover Athletic attacking players Jamie Allen and Tobi Sho-Silva this pre-season, Jack Earing came in from Bolton Wanderers, finally Will Appleyard is likely to be on the bench as back up to Sam Johnson
