Harrogate Town will host Premier League Hull City in a pre-season fixture on August 3 (kick-off 3pm).

The match will take place four days before Paulo Di Canio brings Hull’s Premier League rivals Sunderland to the CNG on August 7.

Steve Bruce’s Tigers secured automatic promotion to the top tier in a dramatic final day of the Championship season earlier this month.

They drew 2-2 at home with champions Cardiff City, and the point was enough for Hull to finish abover play-off finalists Watford.

Blue Square North side Harrogate Town, managed by Simon Weaver, have also organised friendlies against Championship sides Blackburn Rovers and Sheffield Wednesday, and Barnsley, and conference side Lincoln City.
