Retford United will host AFC Mansfield in a friendly at the Jones and Co Stadium on Tuesday night, to help the new-look squad to gel.

New manager Chris Sellars was pleased with an improved performance from the Badgers at Barton Town Old Boys on Saturday, when they lost 2-0 in league action.

And he hopes to build on that ahead of Saturday’s visit of title hopefuls Shaw Lane Aquaforce.

The Mansfield friendly will be a chance for new signings Adam Carter, Adam Ledger and Brad Johnstone to become acclimatised to the pitch at the Jones and Co Stadium and their new team-mates.

Entry to the game will be free and the bar and snack bar will be open from 6.30pm.

There will be a raffle and all donations will be welcome in order to help to cover the cost of the officials.

The game will kick off at the earlier time of 7.30pm and will give Badgers fans the chance to see some of the new players in action ahead of the weekend’s vital game in Retford’s relegation battle.
