We are looking forward to starting the new campaign with a trip to Celtic who have had a very successful season themselves and will no doubt make it difficult for us come Sunday. The game will be a challenging fixture but one that will kick start our pre season.

Wimpenny knows competition will be fierce ahead of the upcoming season. He believes this pre season will and should be vital for the players in preparation for a big season ahead

We know the level of teams within our league this year and we need a solid pre season to help us prepare the best way possible.
