STFC: Next Up - Poole Town

STFC: Next Up - Poole Town

Town travel to Poole Town on Tuesday 3rd August. Kick-Off is at 1945.

The friendly was initiated through the transfer deal that saw Charlie Austin move to Swindon Town in October 2009.

Danny Wilson is expected to rest his key players ahead of Town's opening day fixture with Brighton and Hove Albion. However, it is likely that Charlie Austin will play a small part against his former club while triallist Thomas Dossevi could be invited to play after impressing against Nottingham Forest.
