Six games to warm-up for new campaign
Town’s Under-18 side will play six pre-season friendlies as part of its preparations ahead of the 2014/15 Professional Development League 2 campaign.
The six game schedule will begin with a match at Evo-Stik Division One North side Brighouse Town on Friday 11 July; 7pm kick-off at the Dual Seal Stadium. This will be the third successive season Town’s juniors have played at Brighouse in pre-season, with the other games ending in a 2-0 win for the Terriers (2012) and a 2-2 draw (2013).
That game will be quickly followed by a friendly at PPG Canalside against club partner Kirklees College’s Academy on Tuesday 15 July; 2pm start.
