United Futures pre-season

11 July 2016

The pre-season fixtures for the United Futures programme can now been confirmed.


The programme, which is delivered by United's Academy and The Sheffield College, is aimed at 16 to 18-year-olds who have previous experience of playing to an elite level and who want to develop a career as a footballer, as well as those who want the business knowhow to break into the football, sport and leisure industries.


The Futures have five games lined up, with the first being at Grimsby Borough on Wednesday evening.


Programme leader Lee Dunn commented: "Having played against some strong non-league opposition last season we found it really helped with the development of the players going into the season.


"The momentum of pre-season helped us to win the Yorkshire & Humberside league losing only once in the league campaign last season."


The full fixture programme is as follows:
Wednesday 13 July - Grimsby Borough (A) 7.30pm
Saturday 16 July - Glossop North End (A) 3pm
Thursday 21 July - New Mills (A) 7:30pm
Wednesday 27 July - Bridlington Town (A) 7pm
Saturday 30 July - Maltby Main (A) 3pm
