Cobblers will start their 2022/23 Sky Bet League Two campaign with a home fixture against Colchester United at Sixfields on July 30.

Jon Brady then takes his side to EFL returnees – and new signing Ben Fox’s old club – Grimsby Town for their first away fixture the following weekend before the focus turns to the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, August 10. The draw for the first round takes place later.

Hartlepool United are the second team to visit Sixfields on August 13 before Northampton face back-to-back away games against Crawley Town and recently-relegated Crewe Alexandra. Last year’s National League winners Stockport County are due at Sixfields on September 24.
