Gerard Nash and Chris Hogg's Under 23 team, who won the Professional Development League 2 South title before losing to Birmingham in the play-off's last season, will play a trio of games in the lead-up to their season beginning.

In addition to the previously announced visit to Coggeshall, the young Blues will also visit Sudbury (July 20) before a game at Lowestoft on July 24.

The Under 18s, managed by Adem Atay, will play five matches prior to the start of the new campaign.

Their schedule includes a mixture of games against local sides, with visits to Leiston and Felixstowe & Walton United, as well as a home game against Brighton at Playford Road and a visit to Reading.

The stand-out fixture, though, is a visit to Premier League side Tottenham on Saturday, July 27.

Paul Lambert's first team's pre-season programme is nearly complete, with the only further announcement being full details of a tournament due to be played in Germany on July 14.

Lambert's men will play two games as part of that friendly competition, with a game against Bundesliga side Paderborn planned for July 6.
