We’ve now received confirmation that Luton Town will be bringing their first team to Top Field for the 7pm kick-off on Friday 6th July.

From the Luton Town website:

Hatters boss Nathan Jones is looking forward to this Friday’s game against Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Central outfit Hitchin Town ahead of his side’s pre-season trip to Slovenia on Saturday.

Town head to Top Field to start their pre-season schedule – with the game kicking off at 7pm. They then head to eastern Europe in the early hours of Saturday morning, where they will stay for a week.

With the youth team already away at their Italian training camp, it leaves no questions to answer about whether it will be a first team squad taking on the Canaries – with the gaffer hoping the evening will prove a good opportunity for the players to see where they are at fitness wise.

Jones believes they have returned in excellent shape, and he said: “It’s nice to get back at it. We like to go to Hitchin, there’s good people over there, we’ve got a good relationship with their club.

“It’ll be good to give them a run out, give them 45 minutes each. But pre-season is a good time, especially early on when you’re finding your form and feet. It’s a really good gauge and that’s what Friday night will be.

Sky Sports will also be in attendance to cover the action.

There will also be a minute’s applause ahead of this fixture in memory of long-time Hitchin Town and Luton Town supporter Barry Revels.
