FRICKLEY Athletic kick-off their pre-season friendly fixtures tonight when Scarborough Athletic visit the Tech5 Stadium (kick-off 7.45pm).

The visit of the Seadogs provides the first of seven summer friendly tests for Peter Rinkcavage’s new-look Blues as they gear-up for the new Evo-Stik Premier Division campaign.

Frickley fans can expect to see a number of new faces make their debuts for the club against the Northern Counties East League side, with no fewer than nine new signings arriving in South Elmsall so far this summer.

Michael Simpkins, Alex Callery, Bradley Grayson, Ollie Ryan, Stuart Ludlam, Charlie Fisher, Teo Ringrose, Ben Leonard and Rob Austin have so far bolstered the Blues’ ranks.

Athletic will provide a stern test for Frickley and they’ll have some match action in the bag thanks to having already played three friendly matches.

They won 3-1 at Eccleshill United on Saturday and also enjoyed victories over Eastfield and Hucknall Town respectively.

Admission to tonight’s match is priced at £5 for adults, £3 for concessions and £2 for under-16’s.
