Albion’s new boss will make his debut in charge at Lewes.

The Seagulls take on their Ryman League neighbours in the opening friendly of pre-season on Saturday, July 5 (3pm).

Both senior and development squads are in Spain from July 9-18, with each team playing two matches in the La Manga region.

The first team then go to Crawley Town on Wednesday, July 23 (7.45pm) and Peterborough on Saturday, July 26 (3pm).

Home fans get the chance to see their side in action in the run-up to the first day of the league campaign, which is August 9.

That friendly at the Amex is likely to take place on Thursday, July 31, to avoid a clash with Pride on the weekend of August 2-3.

Details of the fixtures in Spain have yet to be announced.
