Lincoln United v North Ferriby United
Saturday 12th July, 3.00pm
Ferriby begin their pre-season programme when they travel to Evostik South side Lincoln United. This is the first of seven fixtures as The Villagers prepare for their second season in the Conference North.
Villagers’ manager Billy Heath has made a number of new signings during the close-season and this will be the first opportunity to see most of them in action.
Heath comments, “Pre-season training is going well. It has been really intense. We are all looking forward to playing again. The new players have settled-in well and the players who have stayed-on from last season are back in the routine.
“Pre-season games are not all about results but I have told the players that we must start these games with the right attitude so that we can take it into our regular season.
Heath is likely to give a game to all his players at some stage as he begins the task of finding his opening line-up for their opening Conference North match at Stockport County on August 9th.
Jamie Yates will not play at Lincoln as he is continuing his recovery from the ankle injury he sustained at the end of last season. New signing Tom Corner is unavailable due to holidays.
NFU’s probable squad : Adam Nicklin, Antoni Pecora, Dean Lisles, Josh Wilde, Nathan Peat, Gregg Anderson, Matt Wilson, Danny Hone, Mark Gray, Jon D’Laryea, Adam Bolder, Liam King, Danny Emerton, Russell Fry, Nathan Jarman, Tom Denton, Louis Bruce, Tim Taylor, Dan Clayton
