NEIL REDFEARN will make his debut for AFC Emley in tonight’s friendly against Rotherham United at the Welfare Ground (7.30).
The 43-year-old midfielder will play for the Northern Counties East League Division I side whenever his duties as youth coach at York City allow.
He makes his bow for Ian Banks’ team in their final preparation for Saturday’s League opener at Barton.
There’s further good news for Emley, too, because their FA Cup extra-preliminary round tie at Formby on Saturday, August 16 is being televised by ITV.com.
ITV Local and ITV.com are filming a number of matches in August, September and October, with highlights available from the following Monday morning.
