CHESTERFIELD venture into the unknown in their opening match of the new league season.

Newly-promoted AFC Wimbledon will host the Spireites at the Kingsmeadow Fans’ Stadium.

The club was formed only 10 years ago after the controversial move involving the old Wimbledon club to Milton Keynes.

After holding public trials on Wimbledon Common, the new fan-owned club played its first friendly against Sutton United, losing 4-0.

But, five promotions later, they are now a Football League side.

Rochdale visit the B2net three days later, ahead of hosting of Steve Evans’ Rotherham United.

The trip to another league newcomer, Fleetwood Town, comes a week before the season ends, with a home game against Exeter wrapping things up.
