Barry to start against Aberystwyth at Jenner.

Barry Town United will mark their return to the Welsh Premier League with a home opener against Aberystwyth Town on Sunday 13th August (5.15pm).

The Sgorio cameras will be on hand for the fixture, as Barry begin their first WPL campaign since 2003-04 against the same team they started against that season.

Barry's first away game will then follow six days later, as the Town travel to Prestatyn Town for a rematch from the 2012-13 Welsh Cup semi-finals.

Then, on Friday 25th August, the cameras return to Jenner Park for the visit of champions The New Saints; opponents who are no strangers to Gavin Chesterfield's men, after the clubs' exciting Welsh Cup and MG Cup showdowns of the past two seasons.

In a rare Thursday night fixture at Jenner Park, a repeat of last season's MG Cup semi-final awaits Sgorio's Facebook viewers, as Carmarthen Town come to Barry on Thursday 21st September.

The Christmas period then brings a double-header to Jenner Park, as Barry welcome Prestatyn on Saturday 23rd December and Cardiff Met on Boxing Day, before the return encounter with the Archers takes place at Cyncoed Stadium; a 1pm kick-off on New Year's Eve.

In other dates for the diary, there will be a first trip to Llandudno since 1994 on Saturday 16 September, a first ever visit to Bangor City's Nantporth stadium a fortnight later and a maiden voyage to Welsh Cup holders Bala Town on Saturday 21 October.

Following their memorable Welsh Cup meeting at The Rock in 2013-14, Barry return to Cefn Druids on Saturday 25 November; while, 20 years on from their 5-5 thriller at Jenner Park, Barry will entertain Newtown again on Saturday 9 September.

Finally, there will be more Sunday afternoon football in store on Sunday 29 October, as the Town welcome visitors and Europa League adventurers Connah's Quay Nomads in a 2.30pm kick-off.

After completing the 22 fixtures in January, the league will split into a top and bottom six; with Barry playing the other five in their division again, home and away.

The full set of fixtures for the initial 22-game stage can be found in the graphic accompanying this article - please note, both Carmarthen matches are, in fact, 7.45pm kick-offs.
