NEWPORT County have announced their first pre-season friendlies for the 2012/13 campaign with Bristol Rovers the first team to visit Rodney Parade.

The Exiles' League Two neighbours come to Newport on Tuesday, July 24.

At present that is the only scheduled friendly for Justin Edinburgh's side at their new home but that is likely to change in the coming weeks with more fixtures announced.

Meanwhile, County will be on the road for the majority of their warm-up games before the Blue Sqaure Bet Premier campaign gets under way on August 11.

County start at Undy Athletic on July 6 before moving on to Moreton Rangers on July 13, Evesham United on July 14, Carmarthen Town on July 21, Chippenham Town on July 31 and Weston-super-Mare on August 3.
