Scunthorpe United will face Sunderland in a pre-season friendly at Glanford Park on Wednesday, July 26th (7.30pm kick-off)
The Championship side will visit us for the third of our four warm-up games in this country ahead of the 2017-18 season.
Full ticket information will be announced in due course.
“It’s good to get this one over the line, as it is one we’ve had pencilled in since before the end of last season. There has been a turnaround there with David Moyes leaving, so it took a little extra time to sort out,” said Iron manager Graham Alexander.
“We’re delighted because we want to vary our opposition. We did that last pre-season and felt it worked really well. We believe it gives our supporters a chance to see our team play against what will no doubt be a very good side. It will be a tough test for us but we’re looking forward to it.”
