Aberystwyth Town FC announce visit of Hull City Under 23 Squad to Park Avenue in August
Aberystwyth Town are delighted to announce a prestigious Pre Season Friendly against Hull City's Under 23 side, managed by John Beale, on Sunday 6th August (ko 2pm).
The friendly was arranged by Town Manager Tony Pennock, who talked to atfc.org.uk about his links to Hull City over the weekend:
"I spent three years at Hull City as Academy Manager, and I then became First Team Coach with Mike Phelan last season. I brought John Beale to the Club, as well as Terry Boyle, who is also still there. It was an interesting three years as we were in the Premier League, relegated then came straight back up again! From the Academy we saw Players such as Jarrod Bowen, whom I brought up from Hereford, and Josh Tymon - who made 12 First Team appearances last year - come through to the First Team, with another four making their debuts in the League Cup.
Hull City's Under 23s have a good pedigree. They finished second in the Professional Development League last season and only just lost to Sheffield Wednesday in the Play Offs. They will be of a similar level to the Swansea City Development side I brought up a few years ago.
As our last friendly, we expect them to give us our hardest game of pre season and they see us as their hardest game too. It should be a great occasion!"
