IT'S great to have the English Lower Leagues back in action and three sides who I think will have strong campaigns feature in this evenings selections with the main event coming from Mill Farm…
AFC FYLDE VS. CHORLEY
I included Fylde in my Antepost bets and, having come close two years running, it could be third time lucky – they are a club who are destined to play league football at some stage in the future.
Managing to hang onto Danny Rowe has been a real positive for The Coasters and his 2nd half penalty secured a 1-2 away victory against Aldershot on the opening day.
The future looks bright at Mill Farm and a world away from their previous incarnation Kirkham & Wesham whom I watched play in the old North West Counties League many moons ago!
Local rivals and clog-loving weirdos Chorley may well find it all a bit too much as they make the short visit by goat to the Lancashire coast; not only will it be the first time many fans have experienced running water but the massive gulf in quality between National League North/South and National League proper will be a stark learning curve after their successful promotion.
Fylde have the experience, firepower and dominance to be nailing this one and I'm taking my man Rowe to do the damage.
- DANNY ROWE TO SCORE

Also adding this treble with both York and Wrexham doing the business for me on the opening day:
