FC Halifax Town:
This fixture will mark Halifax’s first outing of their 2021 pre-season campaign, as they look to build on last season’s 10th place finish in the National League.
Manager Pete Wild has made two additions to his squad this summer, who both could make their first appearance for the Shaymen in this fixture, with Harvey Gilmour signing from Stockport County and Billy Waters making the move from Torquay United.
However, a couple of last season’s squad have departed the club in the last week, with defender Neill Byrne and striker Jake Hyde joining Hartlepool United and Wrexham respectively.
Venue: The Citadel, LS28 5BE
Kick-off: 7.45 pm
