Forest Green Rovers will face local sides Bath City and Yate Town during the build-up to the 2019/20 season.

In addition to the previously announced game against Championship outfit Bristol City, Forest Green will play away from home at Twerton Park and Yate Town.

The first of the two fixtures will see Rovers travel South on the A46 to face newly promoted Yate on Wednesday, July 17th at 7:30.

Paul Britton’s side earned their place in the Southern Premier League for next season with a 3-1 victor over Cinderford Town at the end of last campaign, former FGR forward Ollie Mehew scoring a brace on the day.

Rovers will then face Bath City 10 days later as they take on the National League South side at 3pm on Saturday, July 27.

Bath and Forest Green have met eight times in all competitions, twice in the FA Cup, and it is a fixture that Rovers are yet to lose.

Tickets for the game against Yate Town will be priced at £10 for adults, £5 for concessions (over 65s), £3 for juniors (12-17) and all Under 11s go free. Tickets will be available on the gate.

Tickets for our trip to Bath City will be priced at £10 for adults, £7 for concessions and £1 for Under 16s and will be available on the gate.
