Forest Green Rovers can confirm Swindon Town and Bristol City will feature at The New Lawn in July, as Rovers prepare for the 2013/14 season.
Both Bristol and Swindon will contest League One next season after City were relegated from the Championship and Swindon bowed out of promotion contention in the first round of the play-offs against Brentford on Saturday.
Forest Green Rovers have agreed personal terms with striker Danny Wright on a two year contract with the option of a third.
The 28-year-old is coming off a successful 2012/13 campaign with Wrexham that fell agonisingly short of promotion for the Dragons after they went down 2-0 to Welsh rivals Newport County at Wembley on Sunday.
The New Lawn is hosting a number of charity matches this Sunday 12th May between England Veterans and Wales Veterans in aid of The Cardiomyopathy Association.
Selected from the England and Wales Veterans Football Leagues, the 55+ age group will kick-off at 12.30pm, while there will be a 2.30pm start time for the under 55s game.
The first tournament for girls and women organised by Forest Green Rovers Ladies and the University of Gloucestershire will be held on the 1st of June.
