SANDAL’S pre-season friendly against Hull Ionians will be played at Milnthorpe Green on Saturday, August 13.

The game was scheduled to be played at Hull but it will now be hosted by Sandal with a 2.30pm kick-off.

National 2 North side Ionians will pose a good test for Jim Kilfoyle’s squad, which has been bolstered by the arrival of two new players over the summer.

Former Ionians centre Mark Pease could face his former club on Saturday having switched to Sandal but newly-signed prop Adam Kemsley will miss the game through injury.

Sandal will continue their pre-season on Saturday, August 20 when they play a friendly at North One East outfit Wheatley Hills (3pm).

Junior and mini players are invited to Sandal’s registration day on Sunday, September 4 (10.30am).
