Town boss Russell Slade is set to take his full first team squad for our opener at Cleethorpes Town, giving fans a chance to get a look at some of his new recruits for the very first time.
Speaking on iFollow, he said: "We'll be working very hard so it will be more about the physical element that we will get out of the game. At that stage of pre season, nobody will play more than 45 minutes though.
“It will be tough for the players, and I wouldn’t want it any other way really, and I think they expect it to be a tough period. It’s not a question of trying to break people, but it’s trying to utilise those six weeks in the best possible way because you can’t claw those weeks back or find them again in the season."
The Mariners are scheduled to visit the Bradley Community Stadium just two days after that opener against Marcus Newell's side, when we face Grimsby Borough. The Town boss may opt to send a less experienced squad for that warm-up game.
