Slimbridge announce six pre-season fixtures, including four games at Thornhill Park

Southern League side Slimbridge have announced their pre-season schedule ahead of the 2019/20 football season. 

The Swans, who survived the threat of relegation and secured Southern League Division One South status at the back end of the 2018/19 season, will play host in four of the six friendlies – with the U18s side yet to announce their games.

Slimbridge start their pre-season with two sides who played in the National League South last season, with Gloucester City visiting Thornhill Park on Friday 12th July before Weston-Super-Mare the visitors on Thursday 18th July.

Back-to-back away games see Slimbridge travel to Hellenic Premier sides Longlevens, on Tuesday 23rd July and Brimscombe & Thrupp, on Friday 26th July.

The Swans host their U18s side in an inter-club friendly on Friday 9th August. The week before (Friday 2nd July) is currently scheduled to see Evesham United the visitors to Thornhill Park, however that is TBC.

This is because Evesham United are due to make a lateral move in the Southern League into the Division One Central. If the move happens the fixture will take place, however if Evesham stay in the same league as Slimbridge then the Swans will seek another opponent, Severn Sport understands.

All fixtures are currently scheduled to kick off at 19:45 and are all subject to change.

Gloucester City have also confirmed their pre-season schedule for 2019, check that out by clicking here.
