"We have moved the training schedules around a little bit and will end the week with this game on the Thursday evening," said manager Dean Austin.

"The players will have got through an awful lot of work by then and it will be good to give them a run out to end the week.

"Supporters who are in the area are invited to attend the fixture, and they are also welcome to come and attend an open training session too on the Tuesday."

The Hill game becomes the fifth pre-season friendly to be announced to date, and Austin has confirmed there will be others.

"We are looking to add two more matches to the pre-season schedule to round off our preparation," said the Town manager.

"They will be played in the week after we return from Spain, and we will make announcements on those in due course."
