Leicester City Under-23s will return to the island of Jersey for a pre-season fixture against Jersey Bulls.

Coach Steve Beaglehole took his side to the island twice in 2017, playing friendlies against the Jersey national team in April and July – winning 3-0 and 2-1 – with the latter being part of a three-day training camp.

They will face newly-formed club Jersey Bulls, who will be preparing for their first season in the Combined Counties League Division One, on Tuesday, July 16.

Leicester staff have enjoyed their previous trips to Jersey and feel that the island is a good destination for early pre-season preparations.

Jersey Bulls manager Gary Freeman told Jersey Evening Post: “This is another exciting fixture for the club as we build towards the new season [and] another chance for the players to test themselves against professional opposition.

“These are exiting times for Jersey football, I’m sure the local football community will be out in force to support Jersey Bulls FC and watch potential Premier League stars of the future.”

The Development Squad will also face Radcliffe Borough in a friendly on Tuesday, August 6.
