Pre-season friendlies confirmed

Hinckley AFC can now confirm our pre-season schedule with five friendlies arranged ahead of the start of the United Counties Premier South season.

The schedule sees Joe Conneely and Courtney Hunter-Belford pit their side up against step four, five and six opponents in the build-up to our first campaign at step five.

The pre-season schedule kicks off with a trip to last season’s Midland League Premier play-off finalists Lichfield City on Saturday 6th July. We then head to last season’s league rivals Chelmsley Town two days later on Monday 8th July.

The following week, Hinckley head to Sutton United on Saturday 13th July for a 4pm kick-off before a home game against step four outfit Rugby Town on Monday 15th.

Pre-season concludes with the Simon Blyth Memorial Trophy fixture at Heather St John’s on Saturday 20th July, with the anticipated start of the UCL South season a week later.

With the exception of the later kick-off time at Sutton, all other Saturday fixtures start at 3pm with midweek games kicking off at 7.45pm.
