RESTORED to the Blue Square North, Vauxhall Motors open their 2008-09 season with a trip to Harrogate Town on Saturday, August 9.
Their first home game is three days later on Tuesday, August 12 against Stafford Rangers.
Droylsden will entertain Carl Macauley’s men on Boxing Day before visiting Rivacre Park on New Year’s Day in back-to-back fixtures.
And the Motormen will complete their season with a home game against King’s Lynn, boasting new signing, former Aston Villa forward Julian Joachim.
Although Vauxhall have lost Paul Taylor to Chester City, one of their other top players looks likely to stay.
Defender Craig Robinson is expected to remain at Rivacre Park now Motors have been allowed to stay in Blue Square North.
In the FA Youth Cup preliminary round, Motors have been drawn at home to Woodley Sports. The tie will take place in the week beginning Monday, September 8.
Airbus UK Broughton have replaced departing boss Gareth Owen with former Premiership star Craig Harrison.
Owen dropped a bombshell when he signed a one-year deal with Rhyl to play under his former right-hand man at the Airfield, Allan Bickerstaff.
Although stunned by the player-manager’s decision, Wingmakers chiefs wasted little time in approaching ex-Middlesbrough defender Harrison.
Harrison, who became Owen’s assistant in December following Bickerstaff’s departure, was delighted to accept and in doing so becomes the Welsh Premier League’s second youngest manager at 30.
He said: “I’m ambitious and I didn’t want to stay as a number two for long so this comes as the ideal opportunity, although it comes at a disappointing time because Gareth will be massively missed both on and off the pitch.
“But I’m really pleased to have been given this chance and I plan to make the most of it.”
Uefa B Licence holder Harrison, who also turned out for Preston and Crystal Palace in a playing career that was ended by a serious leg injury, will be assisted by long-serving clubman Andy Thomas.
