Robins face AFC Fylde first up
Monday 16 July
Ilkeston FC will kick-off their 2012-13 campaign with a home fixture against fellow Evo-Stik NPL Premier Division newcomers AFC Fylde on Saturday August 18.
While we took our place in the higher league after finishing third and then winning the Division One South play-offs, the Lancashire club won the Division One North title to seal automatic promotion.
The Robins will follow that up with a short trip to Rushall Olympic on Tuesday August 21.
The eagerly-awaited home clash with close derby rivals Eastwood Town comes on Bank Holiday Monday, August 27, with the return at Coronation Park on Boxing Day.
Ilkeston will conclude their fixtures on Saturday April 27 with a fixture at near-neighbours Matlock Town.
