PRE SEASON FRIENDLIES:
The process of organising pre-season friendlies is already well underway, as soon as the schedule is finalised we will of course announce across all the usual platforms. It is currently expected that the team will regroup for the beginning of pre-season at the beginning of July.
As always, the Clubs released and retained list is one of interest to supporters, whilst there is not a specific set date for its release, as soon as it is finalised we will communicate the final list to supporters via the Club’s Website and its social media channels.
Firstly, we’d like to thank everyone who tuned into #LiveFromTheHive this season. The ability to continue this service is dependant on whether UEFA reintroduces the ‘3pm blackout’ which would restrict us from being able to broadcast our matches live, there are also other rules regarding broadcasting that are set by The National League. We will keep you posted on this over the summer break, but would hope to be able to look at streaming some of our pre-season friendly matches, if possible.
