The Hawks will be travelling all over the south of England in the upcoming season in the hopes of a return to the National League.
The journeys will not involve the lengthy travel times that the club had to endure last season but there are some promising away days to look forward to.
The longest journey for the Hawks in a 248-mile round trip to a familiar opponent Braintree Town who also was relegated from the top tier of non-league football. Last seasons trip to Cressing Road brings back good memories as we left victorious after a dramatic 4-3 win.
The shortest of our ventures in the National League South is also to a familiar Aldershot Town with an 81-mile round trip from Westleigh Park to the Recreation Ground. Our last visit was a tough one to take as the Hawks fell on the last day of the season in a 2-0 defeat.
Other visits that will see fans clock up their mileage are trips to Bath City, Concord Rangers and Chelmsford City all teams that will take over 2 hours travelling to reach.
A successful trip to Bath’s Twerton Park was vital in 2017/2018 as a late winner meant we left with all three points thanks to an 84th minute Theo Lewis winner.
The Hawks will also make a long-awaited return to face south coast side Weymouth at the newly named Bob Lucas Stadium. The teams last met in a FA Trophy match in 2014 which ended in a 1-1 draw, in what was preciously knows as the Wessex Stadium.
Dorking Wanderers will also be paid a visit by the Hawks for the first time ever in a league match, the two sides clashed once before in the FA Trophy at Westleigh Park which ended in a 3-1 win for the home side. Wanderers will be coming up to the National League South full of confidence after a strong title winning campaign last season.
Eyes will be set on our trip to Maidstone United who we faced last campaign in the National League, The Hawks will be looking for revenge at the Gallagher Stadium after a 2-0 loss in our last visit. The hour and a half drive home will feel much sweeter with all three points.
The Hawks will also enjoy some trips into the capital with Dulwich Hamlet and Hampton & Richmond Borough being two of the London clubs that we will have to face.
We will be sure to give you further information when our fixtures for the 2019/2020 campaign are released.
