Albion Under-23s start their pre-season against Worthing.

Albion under-23 coach Andrew Crofts will begin his reign as full-time head coach with six pre-season friendlies.

Albion will host senior local opposition at the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre on consecutive Fridays. 

Sandwiched between trips to Bristol Rovers and Fulham - to face their development sides - are home games against Simon Rusk's Stockport County senior team and Reading under-23s. 

Please note: all of these fixtures will be played behind closed doors, although we intend to stream selected matches via MyAlbion TV, which will be confirmed in due course.

  • Worthing (H) – Friday 9th July – 2pm
  • Eastbourne Borough (H) – Friday 16th July – 7pm
  • Sutton United (H) - Thursday 22nd July - 11am
  • Stockport County (H) – Monday 26th July – 2pm
  • Reading Under-23s (H) – Friday 30th July – 2pm
  • Fulham Under-23s (A) – Friday 6th August – TBC

We hope to finalise our first-team pre-season schedule in due course. We are currently awaiting guidance from the government and Premier League on various Covid-19 protocols and the return of fans in order to confirm the schedule and any potential ticketing arrangements.
