The Shots are on the road for their final friendly of pre-season this evening as we face Rod Stringer’s Chelmsford City side who play in the National League South.
The game was also originally meant to be played at the Clarets’ Melbourne Stadium, but this has now been changed to Stanway Rovers FC due to Chelmsford’s pitch not being ready in time for the fixture.
Stanway Rovers play at The Hawthorns, New Farm Road, Colchester, CO3 0PG. Tickets have been priced at £6 Adults, £4 Concessions and Free for U12s.
Please note that this game was originally scheduled to take place on Sat 27th Jul at 3PM, this is now taking place TONIGHT (Fri 26th Jul) at 7:45PM.
Chelmsford will provide a stiff test for Danny Searle’s side who have gone unbeaten in pre-season so far and yet to concede a goal. The Clarets have finished in the National League South Play-Off places for the past three seasons but have yet to make the jump into the National League after a series of Play-Off heartbreaks.
The Clarets are also unbeaten in pre-season and include Shots National League rivals Dagenham & Redbridge as one of the sides they have won against this summer.
