Jersey Bulls’ first pre-season match of the season has been confirmed as we welcome fellow Step 6 side Risborough Rangers to Springfield Stadium on Saturday 29th August.
This will be Gary Freeman’s mens’ first game since March 7th 2020 after the season was postponed and later deemed null and void due to the Corona Virus Pandemic.
Rangers are members of the Hellenic League Division One East, and just like the Bulls were unbeaten before the season was called to a halt.
The match will kick off at 3pm.
Bulls Director Ian Horswell commented ‘The game is hugely exciting as it’s not only our first confirmed pre-season fixture but it is against another unbeaten side from our level.’
‘It is a great test in Gary’s preparations ahead of the new season. Everyone associated with the club is delighted and super excited with the imminent return of competitive football.’
Risborough Ranger’s manager Mark Eaton stated ‘We are all excited to be visiting Jersey as an additional event with our 50th anniversary. The Bulls are a formidable team who I am sure will rise through the leagues so I expect a tough game, and hopefully we can give a good account of ourselves.
In terms of fans being able to be at the stadium to watch the game, Horswell added ‘We are working hard behind the scenes with the government to make fans attending this game a possibility.’
