Five more friendlies confirmed

4 June 2013

Manager Paul Cox has today added five more dates to our pre-season schedule.

 We can announce that along with fixtures already confirmed, we are also set to face Ollerton Town, Buxton, Rainworth Miners Welfare, Boston United and Gainsborough Trinity ahead of our return to the Football League.

The additional pre-season fixtures means our team will have little time to rest after their return from Malta, as just a day later (Wednesday 10 July) they face Worksop Town at the Windsor Food Service Stadium (7.30pm).

Then, on Thursday 11 July, a Mansfield Town XI will travel to local non-league side Ollerton Town (7.30pm).

Nottingham Forest are our first visitors to One Call Stadium on Saturday 13 July, before our pre-season schedule continues with trips to Buxton (Monday 15 July - 7.30pm) and Chester (Tuesday 16 July - 7.30pm).

A week later on Tuesday 23 July, we continue preparations for the League Two campaign with a match against Evo-Stik League outfit Rainworth Miners Welfare at Kirklington Road (7.30pm).

We then play twice in the space of 24 hours, as Coventry City visit us on Friday 26 July (7.30pm), ahead of a trip to Boston United a day later (3.00pm).

Our final pre-season match will see us lock horns with Gainsborough Trinity at the Northolme Ground on Tuesday 30 July (7.30pm).

A further match may be added to our pre-season schedule on Saturday 20 July, whilst further details about our trip to Malta will be announced in due course.
