Our First Team will play Brighton and Hove Albion in a pre-season friendly to mark the official opening of their new stadium, the American Express Community Stadium.

Our date with the newly-promoted Championship side is scheduled to take place on Saturday July 30, kick-off TBC.

This fixture will follow our tour of South Africa where we will be competing in the Vodacom Challenge.
