Notts County Youth Team will start their pre-season games tonight...
The Youth Team travel to Leicestershire to face Aylestone Town for 7pm kick-off.
Academy Manager Mick Leonard is excited for the games ahead and has been impressed with the squad already this pre-season.
He told the Official Site: “It’s going to be a good work out for us tonight and it’s all about gaining further fitness and working on what we’ve been doing already in training.
“Nothing prepares you for matches, than playing games. Tonight we head to Leicestershire. There are excellent facilities there and a nice pitch, which is ideal for us as we like to get the ball down and play.
“It will give Andy (McMillan) a first chance to see the boys in action. He has the same mindset of coaching as me and likes to play football.
“I have to say the attitude and application has been first class so far and I’m hoping that carries onto the pitch.”
The side will have five pre-season games, including away matches at Sheffield United, Cheltenham Town and Peterborough United, before the league campaign kicks-off on August 10.
The fixture list is yet to be confirmed, but keep checking back to the Official Site for the latest news.
