Rovers to play Fleetwood Town tomorrow

Sligo Rovers will depart for a pre-season camp in St. George’s Park in England tomorrow, Friday which will last a total of four days, with the squad returning to Sligo on Monday.

Manager John Russell and his squad were scheduled to face Stoke City Under 21’s at their Clayton Wood training ground however, this fixture has been cancelled due to a frozen pitch at the venue after a heavy snowfall in the area overnight.

Instead, Rovers will travel to take on Fleetwood Town at 2.30pm on Friday afternoon in a behind closed doors friendly. The game will take place at Town’s Poolfoot Farm training ground.

The Bit O’ Red then travel South to Burton-on-Trent where they will spend three days on site at St. George’s Park, home of the English FA.

There will be a number of training sessions over the weekend with a game against Nottingham Forrest Under 21’s scheduled for 11am on Monday morning at the same venue before the squad fly home.
