Preparations for the 2019/20 season get underway this evening as the Celt Army make the short trip to Eccleshill United.
Trips to Eccleshill have become a regular occurrence in pre-season, with this being the third consecutive year the fixture has taken place, and on both previous occasions we have emerged victorious, winning 4-3 in 2017, and 3-1 in 2018.
This will be the first chance for supporters to see new signings Elliott Wynne, Tyler Walton and Jordan Richards in action, as Adam Lakeland’s side prepare for life in the Vanarama National League North.
Eccleshill also kick-off their pre-season campaign tonight, and will be getting set for another year in the NCEL Premier Division, under new Manager Lee Elam, following their 10th place finish in 2018/19.
Tonight’s game takes place at the Mitton Group Stadium, postcode BD2 1PN. Kick off is 7.45pm, and admission prices are just £5 adults and £3 concessions.
The rest of our pre-season schedule is as follows:
Saturday 6 July – Away v Brighouse Town (3pm)
Monday 8 July - Away v Thackley (7.45pm)
Saturday 13 July – Home v FC Halifax Town (3pm)
Tuesday 16 July – Home v Rotherham United (7:30pm)
Saturday 20 July – Away v Harrogate Town (3pm)
Friday 26 July – Home v Ossett United (7:45pm)
