Notts County will face promotion-chasing Derby County at Meadow Lane on Saturday 19th July.
Steve McClaren’s side agonisingly saw their dreams of promotion to the Premier League snatched away by a last-minute goal for Queen’s Park Rangers in the Sky Bet Championship Play-off final earlier this month.
They will be hoping to go one stage better next season and have added businessman Mel Morris to their boadroom to bolster their financial clout.
Shaun Derry’s side will be looking to get off to a better start next season and avoid any last day of the season relegation worries.
The match will kick off at 1pm.
