Boston United have announced they will play a pre-season friendly against an Aston Villa XI.

Dennis Greene’s squad will host a side - believed to be made up mostly of the Villains’ under 21s - at the Jakemans Stadium on Sunday, August 4.

The Premier League club will be the top name in a number of high profile warm-up matches, with the Pilgrims also set to test themselves against teams from Leeds United, Mansfield Town and Cambridge United.

The Pilgrims will face Villa on the Sunday as they travel to play Lincoln City at Sincil Bank the previous day.
