Morecambe will kick-off the new 2015/16 League Two season with an away trip to Hartlepool United on August 8.

The Shrimps will travel to Victoria Park hoping to get off to a winning start with victory over Ronnie Moore’s men.

A week later an enticing derby encounter against Accrington Stanley – a team they have never beaten in a league fixture – is their first home game.

And three days later, the first midweek league fixture of the season will see Wycombe Wanderers visit the Globe Arena.

The opening fortnight of the season will be rounded off by a trip to Fratton Park to take on former Premier League outfit Portsmouth.

Jim Bentley’s men will be targeting a fast start like they did last year when they won their opening four games of the season to top the table.

Morecambe’s first clash against a newly promoted team will be in early October when they entertain Conference play-off winners Bristol Rovers.

Over the Christmas and New Year period, Morecambe will entertain Mansfield Town on Boxing Day, before travelling to Notts County – relegated from League One – two days later.

A visit to Adams Park to face Wycombe will be the club’s first game of 2016 on January 2.

On Saturday, March 26, Morecambe are scheduled to host Plymouth Argyle at the Globe Arena, before travelling to old foes Dagenham and Redbridge two days later on Easter Monday.

The return derby clash against Accrington Stanley at the Crown Ground is on April 16.

Morecambe will round the season off with a home clash against York City on May 7.
