Sky Bet League Two fixtures 2018/19: Macclesfield return to EFL at Swindon
Last Updated: 21/06/18 9:43am
Macclesfield will kick off their return to the EFL with an away trip to Swindon on the 2018/19 Sky Bet League Two opening weekend.
John Askey led the club, tipped for relegation from the National League last season, to a shock promotion - only to leave the club for League One side Shrewsbury Town.
Former Solihull Moors manager Mark Yates took over on Tuesday, and faces a tough start in his first competitive game in charge at the County Ground on August 4.
Tranmere, back in the football league for the first time since 2015, will also start away from home as they play Stevenage.
