Summer friendlies to include memorial match

Ebbsfleet United may still be determining the outcome of this season but that hasn’t stopped preparations for pre-season 2017/18.

The club has already lined up three home friendlies against Premier League and EFL opposition in July.

The first will take place against Tottenham Hotspur, who had promised to send a team to Stonebridge Road as part of the deal that took Shilow Tracey to White Hart Lane. The club, with the Fleet Supporters Trust, has chosen to designate this high-profile friendly as the Paul McCarthy Memorial Match and all gate receipts after expenses will be donated to Paul’s family to use as they see fit. The club has invited Paul’s family to the game and more news surrounding this match will follow in due course.

We will also be playing League Two play-off hopefuls Cambridge United, followed by Danny Kedwell’s former League One club AFC Wimbledon.

Admission will be £10 adults, £8 concessions, £5 for 12–16-year-olds while children under 12 go FREE. This pricing structure applies to all three matches. The dates for each game are as below. Please note, advance ticket sales are currently not available and the match will be pay on the day unless otherwise notified.

Saturday 15th July – Home v Tottenham Hotspur (Paul McCarthy Memorial Match, 3.00pm)

Tuesday 18th July – Home v Cambridge United (7.45pm)

Saturday 29th July – Home v AFC Wimbledon (3.00pm)
