Silsden welcome West Yorkshire League side Knaresborough Town to The Asda Foundation Stadium this afternoon for their third match of the pre-season campaign, 3pm.
After a 4-1 win over a young Oldham Athletic side and a 7-1 mauling by a strong Bradford City team, the Cobbydalers will be looking forward to a clash with a fellow non-League outfit to see what they have learned from their matches against pro sides.
Silsden manager Chris Reape told the Telegraph & Argus: “Wednesday was the showcase, the one all the lads have been talking about, and there has been a bit of a buzz around the club.
“But pre-season is all about getting miles in the tank and match sharpness, which is why we have planned it the way we have.”
