Blues to play Premier League side in friendly

IPSWICH Town will play Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers in a pre-season friendly, the club have confirmed today.

The match against Mick McCarthy’s men – the first announced for Portman Road – will take place on Saturday, July 30 – just one week before the new Championship season kicks off.

Wolves finished one place and one point above the Premier League relegation places last season and will prove a good test of Town’s credentials for next season.

In addition to the high-profile fixture, Town will start their pre-season matches with a short tour of Holland, playing FC Eindhoven and Den Bosch.

They will also travel to Southend United and Colchester United as well as matches against non-league Haverhill Rovers, Cambridge United, Bury Town, Needham Marker and Whitton United.
