RUSS PENN admits the start to the new season will be “full on” – but says he can’t wait to get going.
In just a few weeks time, Harriers start their competitive 2020-21 season with a match in the FA Cup.
Just days later, the Reds entertain Chester at Aggborough to open the National League North term.
That’s swiftly followed by a trek up to the Northern Echo Arena, where Darlington are due to stage at least their initial home games.
It makes of a packed beginning, but the boss is adamant that’s how he likes it.
Reflecting on the release of the new season’s fixtures, he said: “It’s a great start, Chester, in the play-offs last year, at home under the lights.
“It would have been a really good crowd if we weren’t restricted – and then we go up to Darlo.
“I think the last time I played in that stadium was 15 years ago!
“It’s good, it’s full on and I’m looking forward to it!”
Harriers have enjoyed some memorable afternoons at Darlington’s huge arena.
