The Citizens' first home tie is against Brechin City on Saturday August 10, with Stirling Albion the visitors to Ainslie Park the following week.

City will once again end the campaign away from home, with a trip to Glebe Park to face Brechin.

Edinburgh finished third in Scottish football's fourth tier last term, behind league winners Peterhead and play-off winners Clyde.

They have made a number of new signings so far this summer, bringing in former Hibs trio Callum Crane, Alex Harris and Jordan Sinclair, while Jonny Court and Chris Kane have arrived from Raith Rovers and East Fife respectively. Several key players from last season including goalkeeper Calum Antell and defender Robbie McIntyre have extended their City deals.
