Academy head coach Grant Brown knows the benefits these games offer to his players.

“Playing at these professional clubs is a fantastic experience for the lads,” Brown explained.

“We’re hoping these games become a regular occurrence. We want to visit these professional clubs more often, and test ourselves against the best.

“These games give the lads a real boost. It’s a great chance for exposure.”

The Academy will travel to Yorkshire on Friday morning in preparation for an afternoon kick-off.

Brown wants his players to step up and show what they have to offer.

“I’ll tell them to go and do their best,” exclaimed Brown.

“I want my players to win games, and get noticed – that’s what they’re here for.

“This Friday will be a real test, it’ll show where we are and what we need to improve on. It’ll be a good indicator of where we are in the football ladder.”
