HUNTINGDON Town will prepare for the new season by testing themselves against tough opposition in a series of friendlies which begins with a visit from Cambridge United. Town are due back in training on July 6 with new manager Paul Swannell at the helm and a complete overhaul of the squad. Swannell told The Hunts Post he expects at least a dozen new faces to line up for the pre-season training at Jubilee Park. Among these will be Ryan Francis and Paul Turner, both from March, and Luke Weston from Wisbech. The new-look team's first test will be a home tie against Nationwide Conference outfit Cambridge United on Monday, July 24 (kick off 7.45pm). United had spent 35 years in the professional football leagues until their recent relegation, but this is the sort of tie the new boss is hoping will test his team.
