Dunfermline will host Alloa Athletic on the opening day of their 2022/23 League One campaign after the SPFL revealed their fixtures lists for the season ahead.

The Pars then travel to newly promoted, and newly rebranded, FC Edinburgh for their first away test.

Dunfermline’s maiden trip to local rivals Kelty Hearts comes in their fourth fixture, on August 20. They host fierce foes Falkirk on September 17.

Dunfermline will head into the new season under the guidance of James McPake following the departure of John Hughes at the end of last season.

Hughes had expressed his intention to stay on and guide the Pars back to the Championship but left the East End Park club days later.

John Hughes can hardly believe it as his side went down 1-0 to Arbroath.

McPake joined after a spell at Dens Park which saw Dundee promoted to the Premiership via the play-offs during the 2020/21 season.

In the top flight McPake endured a tough spell, though things appeared to be on the up just ahead of his sacking, with wins over Peterhead in the Scottish Cup and at Tynecastle in the league.

His successor Mark McGhee failed to win a match until the side was effectively relegated.
