Our Under 21s side has just touched down in Sacramento, California, ahead of their end-of-season tour in the United States.
According to the official site, they flew without first-team breakout players Cameron Brannagan, Connor Randall, and Kevin Stewart – though all three will join Michael Beale’s men over the weekend.
We will play two games – both against American third-tier side Sacramento Republic. The first will take place at their home ground, Bonney Field, on May 21st. The second will be played in Reno, Nevada on May 25th.
The tour comes just a couple of days after it was confirmed our Academy forward Daniel Trickett-Smith completed a permanent transfer to Sacramento.
The 20-year-old attacking midfielder was out of contract this summer, and it’s widely thought he could make his debut against us on Saturday.
“I want to say a massive thank you to everyone at LFC – staff, players and especially the fans for the support over the years. Unbelievable fans,” he said.
“I’m happy to have signed for Sacramento Republic FC. I can’t wait to get over there and start playing.” (via Echo)
