Rushden open their 2008 campaign with an interesting away trip to Eastbourne Borough. Rushden fans will have to brave a 200m+ round-trip to Priory Lane, shown below, for the first day of the season.
The first Rushden/Kettering derby will take place just a few weeks into the new season, when the two clubs meet on the 23rd of August, at Rockingham Road. The Nene Park fixture will take place on the 11th of April, late enough in the season to be potentially decisive for both clubs’ campaigns.
The Xmas-time derby will once again be with Stevenage Borough, with the home fixture coming on New Years Day, and the away fixture on Boxing Day.
Rushden will face Oxford in early-October and mid-March. The season will end with a home tie versus Woking.
