Barnsley Pre-Season Fixture Announced

Barnsley Pre Season Fixture Announced

Gainsborough Trinity are delighted to announce the visit of Barnsley FC to the Martin & Co Arena on Saturday 7th July, with a 3pm kick off. The fixture marks the start of an exciting journey that will be the 2018/19 campaign under the guidance of highly experienced duo Lee Sinnott and John Reed. And with Barnsley looking to bring a strong side to the Northolme, we look forward to welcoming a good number of Tykes to Gainsborough for the game.

Lee Sinnott declared, "It’s fantastic to get a side the quality of Barnsley down to Gainsborough for a friendly. It will be a good early bench mark for where we are at following our summer recruitment. We are really pleased with the start that we have made in the transfer market, but we are looking at a number of players who are due to come in on trial, for us to look at them and them to take a look at us. To be able to pit them against a good footballing side like Barnsley will be an exciting proposition."

On the same day, the Holy Blues are scheduled to send a side to Bottesford Town. That game is likely to include a handful of first teamers and trialists mixed with the fledgling youth team.

"As a lot of people know, we are in a stage of transition behind the scenes. We are developing our Under 18 provisions with the BTEC team that play regular fixtures on a Wednesday through the Foundation; we have Pete Wallace’s u18s set up. In addition to these, we have a large number of players looking to catch the eye and nail down places, looking to progress to the first team. It will be important for John (Reed) and I to watch as many of these lads in action as possible, as we run the rule over our options for the big kick off on August 18th."
