Leeds United will travel to Harrogate Town for a friendly on Wednesday night.

The match will kick-off at 7.30pm at the CNG Stadium.

The Championship side crashed out of the FA Cup at the weekend when Rochdale shocked them 2-0 in the third round.

Aghast with the performance, Brian McDermott contacted Town to arrange the midweek friendly. 


United’s boss will be in attendance and he has promised to bring several first team players to the CNG Stadium, alongside emerging talents.

Last time Town hosted the Whites in a friendly, the match drew more than 1,000 spectators to Wetherby Road.

Town general manager Garry Plant hopes the friendly will cement a link between the clubs.

“It’s a good experience for our lads but it also builds up our PR,” said Plant.

“We have been looking for a link with Leeds for a while. It’s hugely important for us as we are so close together.

“Now we have a good pitch, there’s no reason why Leeds wouldn’t want to send a team here.”

Kick-off will be at 7.30pm.

Adults entry will cost £5, concessions £3 and children under 18 £1.
