New Watford manager Marco Silva will take charge of the Hornets for the first time when they travel to Vanarama National League club Woking in pre-season.

Former Sporting Lisbon boss Silva was appointed as Hornets boss last week, just days after leaving recently-relegated Hull City.

Woking will entertain the Premier League side at their Laithwaite Community Stadium home on Saturday 8th July.

The two sides met last pre-season as the Cards secured a 1-1 draw against a Hornets side containing the likes of Heurelho Gomes, Étienne Capoue and Odion Ighalo.

Woking supporters will also get their first look at their own new manager, with the game also marking Anthony Limbrick’s first appearance in the home dugout.

Limbrick was named as Cards boss three weeks ago and has already began reshaping their squad.  He made three signings in a week with striker Inih Effiong, midfielder Kane Ferdinand and defender Richard Orlu all joining the club.

Kick off time is 3pm on Saturday 8th July, with admission prices set to £15 for Adults, £10 for Concessions and £5 for Under 16s.
