Drogheda United have confirmed that their pre-season friendly against the Blues will take place at United Park on Saturday 8th July (KO 2pm).
The game will be Town’s first of their pre-season programme, which will include the now-annual week training at the Carton House Hotel in Co Kildare. Unlike in previous seasons the Blues won’t be playing Shelbourne.
Former Colchester United midfielder Mark Kinsella is currently first-team coach at Drogheda, who are seventh in the Airtricity Premier League (top flight).
Town boss Mick McCarthy revealed on Friday that games against Colchester and Southend will also be among this summer’s friendlies.

A Play-Off Tale from the Northlands by Von_Lager
It’s been an interesting 10 days for me reading the articles on 29th May 2017 vs 2000 and Huddersfield or Blackburn?. Interesting for me as I was at Wembley for both the 2000 and 2017 finals and both times supported the winning teams.
You Little... Garner? by Mullet
The slow crystallisation of next year’s squad began with first the departures of several key figures spanning the reign of McCarthy, to make way for the securing of fresh faces. Typically, it was the familiar look of Jordan Spence which came first and unsurprisingly as Town look to bounce back from a dismal season.
Desperate Data – the Extreme Numbers That Defined Ipswich Town’s Dismal Season by realprojection
Think Ipswich Town’s 2016/17 Championship record redefined tedium? Think again. Despite a low mid-table finish, set against a background of increasing supporter discontent at insipid management and directionless ownership – Town actually topped (or tailed) the league for many key attributes.
