Reserves fix friendly dates

Manchester United have announced more friendly dates for Warren Joyce's Reserves to add to this Sunday's opening pre-season clash at Bray Wanderers.

The Reds, who reached the Barclays Under-21 Premier League final in May, will head to Southport on 22 July before facing Altrincham, the former home venue for the team, the following day.

Barnsley provide the opposition on 29 July at Oakwell with Danny Wilson's side preparing for life in League One after relegation last season.

The friendlies will enable a number of players to promote their claims ahead of the new campaign.

Meanwhile, the Under-18s have confirmed a practice match against Trafford FC at Shawe View, also for Tuesday 22 July, with a 19:30 BST kick-off.
