SLOVENIAN TRAINING CAMP COMPLETES THE HATTERS' PRE-SEASON PROGRAMME

14 June 2017

Further to yesterday's announcement that tickets are now on sale for the Hatters' friendlies at Kenilworth Road against Leicester City and Scunthorpe United, we can confirm the final part of the squad's pre-season preparations.

The Hatters will use the club's new training ground, The Brache, on a permanent basis when they return for personal testing on Monday 26th June.

Then, after visiting Evo-Stik League Southern clubs Hitchin Town and Bedford Town for the opening warm-up matches on Wednesday 5th and Saturday 8th July, manager Nathan Jones and his team will head to Slovenia for a training camp the following day.

The Hatters will use a bespoke training camp just outside the city of Maribor for a week, before returning home on Sunday 16th July.

Scottish giants Celtic based themselves at the same place last year ahead of their unbeaten domestic treble-winning campaign, so we'll be hoping the sweet smell of success is still in the Slovenian air!

Once back on English soil, the Town head to Vanarama National League South neighbours St Albans City on Tuesday 18th and Boreham Wood, of Non-League's top-flight, on Saturday 22nd July.

Then come the final two matches of the pre-season campaign at home to 2015-16 Premier League champions Leicester on Wednesday 26th July, before Sky Bet League One club Scunthorpe visit on Saturday 29th (ticket details can be found here).
