We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting Barnsley at Mill Farm Stadium on Tuesday 6th July in a pre-season friendly.
The friendly will kick off at 7:30 pm and will be the first game back in front of supporters, putting an end to the long-awaited return for Coasters’ fans and providing Jim Bentley’s men with a welcomed challenge against EFL Championship opposition.
The Tykes, managed by Valérien Ismaël, enjoyed a remarkable season last year as they defied the odds to make it all the way to the Championship Playoff Semi-Finals.
Informed decisions, on whether this friendly will be played in front of a reduced capacity, or open to home and away fans, will be made in due course.
Other confirmed pre-season fixtures include:
Blackburn Rovers – Saturday 10th July, 3 pm KO, Mill Farm
Halifax Town – Saturday 7th August, 3 pm KO, Mill Farm
Rochdale AFC – Saturday 24th July, 3 pm KO, Mill Farm
