United will make their first European pre-season tour in nine years when they visit Marbella next month.

Mark Robins and his side will fly to the Spanish province of Malaga on July 12 returning one week later.

During their stay they will be put through their paces in a number of tough training sessions in the Spanish heat by the Iron’s coaching staff.

The Iron’s Chief Executive Officer, James Rodwell, told “Going out to Marbella is a fantastic opportunity for all the squad to bond during the early stages of pre-season.

“It will be extremely beneficial for all the players to train in the hot European climate and when we was offered the chance to go out there it was one we couldn’t turn down.”

Meanwhile, Iron manager Mark Robins said: “I’ve been to this actual facility in Marbella before and it’s a World Class facility. The equipment they have over there is second to none.”

“It’s great to be able to get the group together and work together in a different environment and in a different country.”

While the trip will be full of intense training sessions, there will be one behind closed doors friendly against a currently unnamed team.

The last time United travelled to Spain for a pre-season tour they won the San-An Cup in Ibiza in 2006.
