UFCA Director Steve Grime commented: "We're extremely excited to be opening up our pre-season fixture campaign tomorrow afternoon against Barnsley.


"They are a really highly-regarded and proven academy setup in the area - and we know that the fixture will provide a challenging test for the group.


"We will be travelling to South Yorkshire with a strong 16-man squad, and are confident that the players can translate their high standards shown in training into impressive performances in a match environment."
