Tring Athletic’s preparations for the new season are well under way and managers Julian Robinson and Ian Richardson have been buoyed by the number of players turning up for training.

And as part of the run-in to the start of the new MSSML Premier Division season, Athletic have lined up some attractive friendlies against opposition from higher leagues to test out their new recruits.

The pre-season friendly schedule begins on Saturday afternoon with a home game against Hendon, 3pm kick-off.

That is followed by a trip to Bedfont Sports the following week, before home friendlies against Northwood, Holyport and Aylesbury United.

Athletic kick off their competitive campaign with a game at home to Codicote in the Herts Charity Shield competition.

The league season gets under way with a home clash against newly-promoted Hoddesdon Town on Saturday, August 10.

Training takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Athletic’s Pendley Ground, with the sessions starting at 7pm.

New players are welcome to attend, and for further details visit the club’s website at or email
