Worthing's fixtures for Bostik League Premier Division campaign revealed
Worthing Football Club's fixtures for a second successive season in the newly-named Bostik League Premier Division were revealed earlier this morning.
Gary Elphick's men finished 14th in the then Ryman League Premier Division last term on their return to that level, after winning promotion through the Ryman League South play-offs the season previous.
Worthing kick off the 2017/18 campaign with a trip to Metropolitan Police on Saturday, August 12, before Leatherhead travel to Woodside Road three days later for Elphick's side's opening home game (Tuesday, August 15).
Other early season matches include a long-trip to Lowestoft on Saturday, August 19, then a visit to rivals Burgess Hill comes on the August Bank Holiday Monday, 28.
Worthing welcome Hillians for the return fixture on Boxing Day, before a first game in 2018 at Merstham on New Year's Day.
A first-ever visit to Ryman League North champions Brightlingsea Regent comes on Saturday, January 13, while they visit Woodside Road on the final day of the season April, 28.
