WINDSOR FC will kick-off the 2012/13 Combined Counties Premier Division season against Epsom & Ewell at Stag Meadow on Saturday, August 4 (3pm kick-off).
Despite last year being their inaugural campaign, The Guardsmen finished runners-up to Guildford City - beaten just a single point - and are many peoples favourites to lift the title this term.
Epsom held Keith Scott's side to a 2-2 draw last August before Windsor narrowly edged the return fixture 1-0 at Stag Meadow in late November - all three goals coming courtesy of talisman Ryan O'Toole.
The club then face a midweek trip to newly-promoted Bedfont Sports - runners-up to Guernsey FC in Division One last year - on August 7, before their FA Cup extra preliminary round tie at Flackwell Heath on August 11.
Guernsey are expected to challenge pre-season favourites Windsor for the title this season with the two sides set to clash at Footes Lane on December 1 and at Stag Meadow on April 1 (11:30am).
Windsor travel to Egham Town - fourth last season - on Boxing Day, Raynes Park Vale on December 29 and host Dorking on January 5, their very first fixture in the New Year.
Windsor FC continue their pre-season preparations tonight (Monday) with a visit from League Two side Wycombe Wanderers. The evening is also being used to launch the football club's new partnership with Alexander Devine Children's Trust and the new away kit.
