It is the second pre-season friendly to be confirmed with Kettering Town due over the week before.

Like Kettering, the Hellenic Division One East side were due to visit Bulls last summer before it was cancelled due to Covid-19-related travel restrictions.

The Buckinghamshire club, from the market town of Princes Risborough, have also enjoyed a lengthy unbeaten run at step 6 of the non-league pyramid much like their hosts, having not lost a league game in two seasons, taking their tally of unbeaten games up to 29, which includes three draws.

Bulls manager Gary Freeman said: 'Pre-season games are crucial for everyone in the build-up to a new season. For us, the management team, we get the opportunity to try a few different things and more importantly for the players, it's an opportunity to play.'
