The Rocks will start the season at home to Lowestoft - but won’t have to wait long to welcome promoted Worthing to Nyewood Lane.

The Suffolk side will help Jamie Howell’s side kick the season off at the Lane on Saturday, August 13 - but just 16 days later Worthing, just up from their play-off success in Ryman one south, will be in town for an August Monday bank holiday clash on August 29.

Bognor will host Havant on Boxing Day in a game that should see Jason Prior’s return to the Lane.

Bognor will host Havant on Boxing Day in a game that should see Jason Prior’s return to the Lane, and perhaps Alfie Rutherford’s, and a week later they will head to Worthing for another bank-holiday Monday encounter on January 2.

Easter sees the Rocks host Harrow on Saturday, April 15 and go to Havant two days later.

The visit to Westleigh Park is their final away game and they close the league campaign at home to Met Police on Saturday, April 22.

Old rivals Dulwich Hamlet will welcome the Rocks on Saturday, October 8 and head to Bognor on Saturday, February 11.

The Rocks have only one cup fixture confirmed so far - away to Slough Town on Saturday, October 29, in the first qualifying round of the FA Trophy. But they will have an FA Cup tie - opponents to be confirmed - on Saturday, September 3.
