Bognor will start life back in the Isthmian League away to Haringey Borough – and will end the season at Folkestone.

The fixtures for the new Bostik premier season, which awaits the Rocks after relegation from the National League South, have been released.

They show an early-season Sussex bank holiday derby away to Lewes, who will visit Nyewood Lane for the return on Boxing Day, while clashes with Whitehawk come on New Year’s Day and Easter Monday.

Worthing host the Rocks for a midweek game, on October 23, and visit the Lane on March 2.

Fixtures with big-spending Dorking, who have signed ex-Rocks Jason Prior and Sami El-Abd, will be keenly anticipated and take place on December 8 at home and April 20 away.

Fixtures are below – home games in bold.
