Murtough said: These matches will help ensure that our whole squad is prepared for the resumption of club football after the World Cup, as we look to maintain our positive momentum into the second half of the season.
“The week-long training camp and matches against Cadiz CF and Real Betis Balompie will also provide an opportunity for some of our younger players to experience what it is like to train within a first-team environment, as well as play against two competitive La Liga sides.”
