Rocks eye up Crawley fixture

Bognor’s pre-season campaign steps up a gear next week as the Rocks play three matches in the space of six days.


It’s a fortnight now until National League South football returns to Nyewood Lane with Bath City visiting on August 5.


After being put through their paces at the usual pre-season training sessions at East Dean, the Rocks were given a real test when they hosted League One Portsmouth on Saturday.


Two goals from former Bournemouth striker Brett Pitman secured the win for Pompey, though Tommy Scutt came close to a consolation in the second period.


The Rocks followed that up with a 5-2 win over Chichester City on Wednesday thanks to goals from Ollie Pearce (2), Jimmy Wild, Jimmy Muitt and James Crane.


Next up is a trip to Wessex Premier side Horndean tomorrow (3pm), who are managed by former Rocks’ boss Michael Birmingham.


Then, on Wednesday, it’s back to Nyewood to host League Two Crawley Town (7.45pm), who are now managed by former Champions League winner Harry Kewell.


Pre-season is completed with a match at Southern Premier side Gosport Borough on Friday (7.45pm).
