The Mariners will give former Hull City, Reading and Brighton striker Harry Cardwell a run-out at Cleethorpes Town tonight (7.15pm). The 20 year-old, who has represented Scotland at Under 21 level, is currently training with Town.
Sam Jones is a big doubt ahead of tonight's pre season opener. The Town frontman is struggling with a knee problem and will be assessed ahead of kick-off.
Harry Clifton is also set to miss out with an ankle injury. The young midfielder picked up the injury during the summer and has missed the first week of pre season training.
Akwasi Asante is the only other absentee. The frontman has been ruled out of the summer schedule – and is not likely to be available until September at the earliest.
James McKeown and one of the trialist keepers will play parts in the fixture at Bradley. Keepers Ben Killip, Sam Ramsbottom and Oliver Pain have been on trial with Andy Warrington during our pre-season schedule.
Town boss Russell Slade will give all of his first-team squad some game time tonight.
We now have just a handful of tickets remaining for tonight's game. However, tickets are available from the Linden Homes club throughout the day and any remaining tickets will go on sale at Bradley from 6pm.
Tickets for Thursday's friendly against Grimsby Borough are also on sale from the Blundell Park ticket office. Tickets for this game are priced at £5 for Adults and £3 for OAPs/ Children. The Mariners' first team will again be on duty at the Bradley Community Stadium for this one.
