Having started back at pre-season over the New Year period, Kenny Shiels will get the chance to run his eye over his squad in a match environment, with a range of games organised between now and the start of the season.
City kick off their pre-season with games on Friday night against Larne F.C and Ballyclare Comrades. Larne have a number of former Candystripes in their side with David McDaid, Tommy Stewart and Shane McEleney all recent arrivals to Inver Park. The game will kick off at 7.15pm.
On the same night, City will also field a side against Ballyclare Comrades. The Comrades are flying high in the NIFL Championship, sitting in second place in the Championship.
Next week the club will travel to Dublin for a series of games, taking on top junior side Sheriff Y.C before facing Airtricity First Division sides Shelbourne and UCD.
