RADCLIFFE Boro have announced that they will play host to FC United in their first friendly of next season on Saturday, July, 15.

It will be the second time the Red Rebels have played at the Inn2gether Stadium following their league game with Castleton Gabriels last September.

Boro are expecting a large crowd, and manager Andy Johnston said: "It will be an excellent occasion and a very testing game against FC United, who have had a marvellous first season.

"They have a number of players who used to play for our club, in fact six or seven, and Karl Marginson was also a popular player here before leaving to become their manager.

"I think it will be a good test for both clubs in preparation for their season's and, having already played at the Inn2gether Stadium this season, we are sure their supporters will once again enjoy our warm and friendly hospitality."

Ticket price and details will be announced in the near future, along with the rest of Boro's pre-season schedule.
