Had things worked out differently for Solihull Moors, they could’ve already kicked off their maiden Football League campaign last weekend.
Defeat to Grimsby Town in the playoff final put an end to their EFL dreams for another season, but Neal Ardley’s side are expected to bounce back.
The signing of Josh Kelly from Maidenhead United represents a step in the right direction for the Moors, who are strong favourites at 9/10 to kick off the season with a victory over Aldershot Town.
The story of Dorking Wanderers rise from non-league obscurity, to National League South playoff winners is one of incredible acumen.
In their first season as a National League club, many are backing them to make a strong impression, but an opening day game against title contenders Chesterfield isn’t the way Marc White would’ve wished to kick things off.
Chesterfield have their eyes set on promotion this season, so expect Paul Cook’s side to make light work of their 13/10 victory odds.
From one title hopefuls in Chesterfield, to another in Notts County, with the Magpies confident this is the season they return to the Football League.
A season of change at Meadow Lane has brought about renewed optimism within the Notts County ranks.
Likely to be up with the promotion contenders come the end of the season, Notts County should have little problem in getting past Maidenhead on the opening day.
It’s starting to feel a little bit like Wrexham are stuck in a never-ending non-league nightmare, with the Red Dragons once again falling short of their promotion ambitions last season.
Hollywood owners or not, the Welsh side have assembled a formidable squad ahead of the 2022/23 season starting.
The standout favourites for the title, Wrexham come in at 33/100 to start their season off with a win against Eastleigh.
After being crowned winners of the National League North playoffs last season, York City’s much-anticipated return to the National League was dampened by a difficult pre-season for the Minstermen.
Just one victory from six pre-season friendlies, including a bruising defeat against Northern Premier League West outfit Macclesfield, represents troublesome preparation to the campaign for York.
By contrast, Woking had time to settle under new boss Darren Sarll at the backend of last season, and hold high hopes for a successful campaign this time around.
Like what you see? Well, good news because this opening day National League acca comes in at a healthy looking 22/1.
