League Two fixtures 2021/22: Sutton, Hartlepool learn fate

The fixtures for the 2021/22 Sky Bet League Two season have been released, with newly-promoted Sutton and Hartlepool learning their fate.

Sutton United’s maiden Football League campaign starts away at last season’s League Two play-off semi-finalists Forest Green Rovers on the weekend of August 7.

Dramatic National League play-off final winners Hartlepool’s four-season hiatus from the Football League ends when they host Crawley Town on the opening day.

Elsewhere on the opening day, Colchester make the long trip to Carlisle, Bradford head to Exeter, and Salford City host fellow promotion hopefuls Leyton Orient.
