United set to face Hull City in pre-season clash

BOSTON United will face a representative side from Championship outfit Hull City.

The Tigers’ development side will make an appearance at the Jakemans Stadium on August 1 (KO 7.30pm).

The last time United faced Hull in a friendly clash, the Pilgrims beat the Tigers’ side - a mixture on old heads and under 21s - 2-1.

This new fixture means United’s pre-season trip to Stamford AFC has been brought forward 24 hours.

The Pilgrims will now travel to the Premier Kitchens Arena on July 30 (KO 7.45pm).

The Stamford match will either be a Lincolnshire Senior Shield semi-final - or a pre-season friendly if the Pilgrims are eliminated from the competition by Lincoln United on July 24.

Current pre-season and Lincs Senior Senior Shield matches:

July 17 v Sleaford Town (A KO 7.45pm).

July 21 v Rainworth Miners Welfare (A, KO 3pm).

July 24 v Lincoln United (A, KO 7.45pm).
