Matlock Town FC can confirm that on Saturday 22nd July at the DCJ Insurance Group Arena with a 3PM kick off, we’ll be welcoming Burton Albion for a pre-season friendly. The Gladiators could line up against fan favourite Marcus Dinanga who scored thirty-four goals in the Matlock blue.

Albion visited DCJ Insurance Group Arena last year to face the Gladiators, with the visitors picking up a 2-1 victory after Marc Newsham grabbed a goal for the blues.

The Gladiators, of course, hold a very famous victory over the Brewers over a two legged FA Trophy semi-final in 1975, The blues would lose the first game at home 0-1 before going on to win the second 2-0 and then march on to Wembley to defeat Scarborough FC 4-0 in the final and in the same game Tom, Mick and Nick Fenoughty would become the first three brothers to play at Wembley on the same team

Ticket prices and availability are yet to be confirmed, but will be announced through the club’s social media channels and website in due course.

According to the football betting and tipster experts at Albion are favourites on paper but with football you just never know!
