MANCHESTER UNITED XI TO VISIT PTS ACADEMY STADIUM AS COBBLERS ANNOUNCE TWO HOME GAMES TO CONCLUDE PRE-SEASON BUILD UP

Cobblers to host Barnet and Manchester United XI

27 June 2018

A Manchester United XI will visit the PTS Academy Stadium as Northampton Town will play two home matches to conclude their pre-season build up.

Vanarama National League side Barnet will be the opponents on Tuesday July 24th at 7.45pm, followed by a Manchester United XI, who will visit on Friday July 27th at 7.45pm for the Cobblers final pre-season fixture.

"Both games will be good tests for us for different reasons," said manager Dean Austin.

"Barnet were obviously in League 2 last season and will present us with the type of challenge we may face from visiting teams week in, week out this season. It will be a good test for the players.

"The Manchester United game will be a different type of test. They will be full of players who are technically very good and they will test our ability to stick to the good habits we will have been working on. We may have periods without the ball and it will be about how we cope with and deal with those situations.

"I think our pre-season build up has a good balance of opposition, and it has been put together to make sure we get to August 4th prepared as well as we possibly can be."
