New Maidstone signing Anthony Acheampong says there is no fear factor at the club

Maidstone meet four ex-Football League clubs in their first five games of the season – but summer signing Anthony Acheampong says they are fearless.

United start their National League campaign with a televised home game against York City on August 6.

The Minstermen, managed by former Celtic and Scotland star Jackie McNamara, were relegated from League 2 last season.

United also face trips to Aldershot, Chester and Tranmere in August, as well as a home game against title favourites Forest Green.

Acheampong, 26, has only been at the Gallagher a week but knows Jay Saunders’ side are ready for the challenge.

He said: “The difference between the Conference and Conference South is the quality, and teams are more organised.

“Strikers are that little bit more clinical, so we have to be clinical also.

“We have to attack every game and not be scared of anyone. What I’ve found is that there’s no fear factor here.

“We all know we can beat anyone and that’s what I love about the club so far.

“When it’s like that it allows you to go out and play with a winning mentality.”
