HARRIERS are excited to confirm the visit of a Manchester United XI to Aggborough for the final fixture of our pre-season programme.
Russ Penn’s men are already set to welcome EFL opposition to Worcestershire in the shape of Cheltenham Town and Walsall.
Now the schedule has the perfect climax, with an XI from Old Trafford due to come for a Friday night fixture on 6th August, 7:45pm.
It has been decades since we’ve had the pleasure of welcoming a team from one of the biggest and most iconic clubs in the world to Aggborough, and we expect interest in the tie to be high.
“It’s an honour for us to be able to welcome a team from Manchester United to Aggborough and it’s a date we’ll look forward to,” said Boss Penn of the news.
“We’ve worked with them over the last year and clearly appreciate how we go about things and conduct ourselves a club, so it is an important relationship for us.
“This is just a week before our season starts so it’ll be great for the lads and, I’m sure, our fans as well.”
As a reminder, there is no longer the facility to pay cash at the turnstile at the ground and so all tickets must be bought in advance.
A range of match hospitality and sponsorship packages are also available for the tie – for more on these please contact Commercial Manager Paul Biggerstaff.
