Pre Season Friendly Game 1, Saturday 2 July KO 3.00pm
Hinckley LRFC v Tamworth
We are back in action for our first pre-season friendly on Saturday and can’t wait to see our supporters again. The destination is a short journey down the A5 to Hinckley Leicester Road FC, against the team that will be starting their first season at step 4 in the Northern Premier League. Last season the club finished in 2nd place in the United Counties League to claim a promotion pace.
Hinckley LRFC were formed after the demise of Hinckley United and play at the Leicester Road Stadium, a ground Tamworth have visited on 4 occasions. The last time was for an FA Cup 1st Round tie in Nov 2011 against then Hinckley United. Over 1900 people were at the game which ended in an exciting 2 - 2 draw. Tamworth won the replay and then went all the way to the 3rd Round where we travelled to play Everton in a famous game.
Speaking to the Lambs Website on Wednesday evening, Assistanst Manager Neil Champelovier said. "We are really looking forward to getting back out on the pitch. "Although we still need to confirm our final decision, it is likely that we will give each squad member 45 mins each on Saturday at Hinckley."
