The fixtures for the Skrill Premier 2014-15 campaign were released earlier today, and Torquay United will begin life back in non league football with a trip to Gateshead on the opening day of the season.

Our first home game at Plainmoor comes three days after the season kicks off on Saturday August 9, and we host Welling United on Tuesday August 12, before wrapping up the first week in effect with another game against Southport on home soil on August 16.

The first local derby for the side will come in the shape of a trip to Forest Green Rovers on Tuesday September 30, with the return fixture taking place on Saturday November 15.

The FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round takes place on the weekend of October 25/26, and the FA Trophy First Round is set for December 13.

Unfortunately we return to non league spending much of the Christmas period away from the comforts of home, travelling to Braintree on December 20, Welling on December 28 and Bristol Rovers on New Year’s Day.

Boxing Day however is at Plainmoor as we host Bristol Rovers.

We close what we all hope will be a season that sees us return to the Football League with a home game against Macclesfield on April 25.
