City Elite Development squad will continue pre-season preparations with a friendly against Shrewsbury Town on Saturday 27 July at 3pm.
Patrick Vieira’s men have returned from a productive tour of Croatia, and a trip to face the League One outfit at Greenhous Meadow (SY2 6ST) is next on the agenda ahead of the opening U21 Premier League fixture against Fulham.
After two games against local opposition while in Croatia, this additional fixture will give new boss Vieira a further opportunity to assess the quality of his young squad, and for the players to increase their sharpness ahead of the new campaign.
We’ll be providing live updates on our twitter account as well as a full match report shortly after full time.
