Horsham FC will begin their 2013/14 league campaign at home against Eastbourne Town on Saturday August 10.

But the immediate fixture after sees the Hornets face their longest trip of the season, away at newly promoted Guernsey on Wednesday August 14 after the Ryman League fixtures were announced today (Wednesday). The match will be Guernsey’s first ever Ryman League match at their home ground and should attract plenty of attention.

Horsham then face Faversham away (Sat Aug 17), Leatherhead at home (Tues Aug 20), Worthing at home (Sat Aug 24) and Three Bridges away (Mon Aug 26) in a tough and busy start to the new season.

Other notable fixtures see Simon Colbran’s Horsham host Three Bridges at Gorings Mead on Boxing Day, play away at Leatherhead on Saturday December 28 before going to Worthing on New Year’s Day.

Horsham will finish their season away from home at Merstham on Saturday April 26.

Last night Horsham played their second pre-season friendly and lost 3-1 away at Epsom Athletic.

Full fixtures will be in this week’s West Sussex County Times, out on Thursday.
