YESTERDAY was a busy day for Bradford (Park Avenue), as they announced their first couple of friendlies.

They are travelling to Ewen Fields on Saturday, July 24 to take on Hyde United, before they welcome Altrincham to Horsfall on Tuesday, August 3 for an evening kick-off.

Both games should hopefully be at full capacity, with coronavirus restrictions all set to be lifted by then.

There are only 11 days between that game with Altrincham and the start of the National League North season, with Avenue and Guiseley both set to begin their campaigns on Saturday, August 14.

The 2021/22 National League North season is due to end on Saturday, May 7, with the play-offs provisionally taking place between Wednesday, May 11 and Sunday, May 22.
