LEEDS UNITED have confirmed two more friendlies with the club to visit Northern Irish outfit Glenavon on July 30.

A date had been discussed with Glenavon a few weeks ago, but it was only finalised at the weekend with the game to kick off at 7.45pm.

Club chairman Adrian Teer said: “The friendly, agreed within the Robbie McDaid [inset] transfer deal, will be part of our club’s 125th year celebrations.

“The game will be all-ticket and prices and other arrangements will be announced within the next few days.

“This will be Leeds United’s only fixture in Ireland and under the terms of Robbie’s transfer supporters should note the Leeds squad for the game will include at least ten members of their first team squad.”

United will also take a side to Corby Town on Wednesday, July 23 (7.45pm).

The Steelman are managed by former Leicester and Barnsley striker Tommy Wright, right, who played under United head coach Dave Hockaday when he was manager at Forest Green.

United also visit Guiseley (July 19) and Chesterfield (July 26).
