Owls U23s to visit The Flamingo Land Stadium to complete pre-season schedule

Scarborough Athletic are pleased to announce that Sheffield Wednesday U23s will be the opponents for our final pre-season friendly on Saturday 5 August. (3pm KO)

The Owls development squad will be visiting the Flamingo Land Stadium on the eve of the new 2017/18 season, as Steve Kittrick's side gear up for the new Evo-Stik North campaign, starting on Saturday 12 August.
