THE Isthmian North fixtures have been announced, and Canvey Island face a trip to AFC Sudbury on the opening day of the season.

The two teams met on the final day last season, with Sudbury already relegated and the Gulls needing a win to remain in the Isthmian Premier League.

But a 2-2 draw resulted in Danny Heale's side going down with Sudbury.

Canvey also have a Boxing Day trip to local rivals Bowers & Pitsea to look forward to.
