LEAGUE Two newcomers Newport County provide the opposition for Taunton Town's first pre-season friendly when they visit Wordsworth Drive on Tuesday, July 16 (kick-off 7.45pm).

Taunton have also arranged three other friendlies to date with two of these being staged at home.
The Peacocks entertain a Torquay United XI on Friday, July 26 and Southern Premier side Chippenham Town a week later on Friday, August 2, both games kicking off at 7.45pm.
On Saturday, August 10, Town travel to Peninsula League Division One East runners-up Stoke Gabriel, with a likely 1.00pm kick-off.
The club are due to announce more pre-season fixtures in due course.
