Good opposition to face just seven days before the premiership campaign kicks off. They'll certainly test us, and give us a good work out. Hopefully a decent crowd will be in attendance, creating a good atmosphere, and for the vast majority of supporters, it will give them the opportunity to take their first look at MON's new look team for the upcoming campaign.
