Longford Town FC have landed somewhat of a coup after securing a pre-season friendly with Manchester United Reserves at Flancare Park for July 23rd.
While it remains to be seen if any of United’s first-team players will make the journey to the ‘Flansiro’ in July, there are sure to be some of the most exciting young players in the world taking on the current leaders of the Airtricity First Division.
‘De Town’ have also lined up an exciting friendly with Championship side Milwall FC for July 18, a side they played in a similar pre-season friendly last year. Last July, LTFC lost 1- 0 to a 52nd minute Tamika Mkandawire header and given recent form the Town will be hopeful of getting a better result this year.
Further details on the matches will be announced soon on ltfc.ie
