Blades to visit Whaddon Road on July 21

Newly appointed boss Nigel Adkins will bring his Sheffield United side to Whaddon Road for a pre-season friendly against Cheltenham Town on Tuesday, July 21 (7.45pm).

He succeeds Nigel Clough, who departed at the end of last season after missing out to Swindon Town in the League One play-off semi-finals.

A goalkeeper during his playing days, Adkins was Scunthorpe's physiotherapist before starting his professional managerial career at Glanford Park.
