PREVIEW | Bognor Regis

Reds travel to Nyewood Lane on Wednesday evening (7-45pm)

26 July 2017

The Reds travel to Bognor Regis to play their final away game of the pre-season schedule tonight (7-45pm).

The team will be looking to get back to winning ways having suffered their first loss of the season on Saturday against Premier League new boys Brighton.

With the competitive campaign drawing closer, this evening presents the opportunity for more match fitness, and for Head Coach Harry Kewell to further assess his players and tactics ahead of the new season.

The Reds took on Bognor Regis Town five months ago in the semi-final of the Sussex Senior Cup - running out 3-2 winnners in extra time.

Lewis Young and an own goal sent the game to an additonal 30 minutes in February, before Enzio Boldewijn sealed the win in the 119th minute and set up a tie with Brighton & Hove Albion in the final of the competition at the Amex Stadium.

The Opposition

The Rocks gained promotion to the National League South last season after finishing 2nd in the Isthmian League Premier Division and winning the play-offs.

Coincidently, Bognor Regis Town beat Crawley’s most recent away opposition, Dulwich Hamlet, 2-1 in the play-off final at the end of last season.

The non-league side had earned their final spot by replicating the same score line in the semi-final against Wingate & Finchley.

When and Where?

Kick-off is at 7.45pm (26th July) at Nyewood Lane.

Tickets are priced at £10 for adults and £3 for U18's. 

Address: Nyewood Ln, Bognor Regis PO21 2QB.
