Derby County to visit Gloucester City in pre-season

Derby County are the big name that headlines Gloucester City’s pre-season schedule, with the Championship side visiting the Tigers on Wednesday 18 July.

The Rams, who recently appointed Chelsea’s all time top goalscorer and former England midfielder Frank Lampard as manager, brought a side to The Jubilee Stadium in 2017, where they ran out 3-1 winners.

It will mark the fourth fixture in Gloucester City’s pre-season campaign that sees Marc Richards’ side test themselves against six other sides, seven in total.

Two of those games will be in The Severn Sport Shield, kicking off at 19:45 on Tuesday 10 July. You can see the full semi-final draw here.

Should the Tigers win their semi-final, it will mean they have a chance at winning two pieces of silverware in July, with the GFA Senior Challenge Cup final against Bristol City u23s still to be played.

Elsewhere, there are trips to Cardiff Met University and Cirencester Town during the Tigers pre-season campaign, as well as an opening game against landlords Evesham United.
