2024/25 Pre-season schedule confirmed

As preparations continue ahead of our first ever season in the EFL, we are delighted to confirm our pre-season schedule.

The Ravens will kick-start with a trip to National League South side Hornchurch on Saturday 13th July, 3pm kick-off at Hornchurch Stadium. The Urchins clinched promotion from the Isthmian League Premier Division after winning the league on 100 points.

Andy Woodman’s men then face two games in one day on Tuesday 16th July, travelling to Crystal Palace for a behind-closed-doors friendly at 2pm before making the trip to Tonbridge Angels at 7.45pm. The Angels finished 14th in the National League South last season and it will be our first trip to the Longmead Stadium since our FA Trophy clash in 2022.

From 20th July to 26th July, the team will be heading to Portugal for a pre-season training camp before returning for a behind-closed-doors friendly away to Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday 27th July, 2pm kick-off.

On Tuesday 30th July, the Ravens make the trip to Cressing Road to face National League South Promotion Winners Braintree Town who return to the fifth tier next season.

Our pre-season schedule will conclude against familiar opposition as we face National League side Aldershot Town at the EBB Stadium on Saturday 3rd August, 3pm kick-off.

Our schedule in full:

Sat 13th July: Hornchurch (A), 3pm kick-off
Tue 16th July: Crystal Palace (BCD), 2pm kick-off
Tue 16th July: Tonbridge Angels (A), 7.45pm kick-off
Sat 27th July: Brighton & Hove Albion (BCD), 2pm kick-off
Tue 30th July: Braintree Town (A), 7.45pm kick-off
Sat 3rd August: Aldershot Town (A), 3pm kick-off

Ticket details for our trips to Hornchurch, Tonbridge, Braintree and Aldershot will be communicated to supporters in due course.

Supporters should also note that due to pitch renovations, we are unfortunately unable to host the Glyn Beverly Memorial Cup this Summer. The match, played against neighbours Dulwich Hamlet in memory of the late, great Glyn, was due to be played at Hayes Lane this year, following last season’s reverse fixture at Champion Hill. With it being our turn to host, Dulwich advised that due to a busy schedule at Champion Hill, they would be unable to reverse the fixture. Both Clubs look forward to competing for Glyn’s Cup again in the next fixture.
