\r\n\r\nDate: Thursday 10th July\r\nCompetition: Friendly\r\nVenue: Jubilee Stadium\r\nKick-off: 7.45pm\r\n\r\nOpponents: Evesham United were formed in 1945, shortly after World War II by returning servicemen, although Gloucester City did play a side named Evesham United side in 1909 in the Cheltenham and District League.\r\n\r\nThe Robins joined the Southern League in 1992 and gained promotion to the Premier Division in 2005, but were relegated after one season.\r\n\r\nThe club moved to their new Jubilee Stadium on the edge of the town in 2012 and last season finished 16th in the Southern League Division One South and West.\r\n\r\nFixture History (including friendlies): \r\n
\r\nThe two clubs last met this time last season, the Tigers victorious 3-1 on August 9th 2013, Scott Wilson, Will Morford and Joe Parker the goalscorers.\r\n\r\nThe last competitive meeting between the clubs was in the Tigers promotion season of 2009, two Lee Smith goals sealing a 2-0 victory.\r\n\r\nTeam news: Tigers manager Tim Harris has been a very busy man over the summer months, totally re-shaping the squad and bringing in eight new signings since the end of last season.\r\n\r\nMost of these new signings can expect some action at Evesham, with new defenders Sam Avery, Matt Williams and Spencer Hamilton all in line for a starting place.\r\n\r\nElliott Chamberlain and Adam Connolly also look set for their Tigers debuts.\r\n\r\nDefender Jack Harris will miss the game after picking up a knock in training, with Tom Webb and Ruairidh Winters missing the game due to work commitments.\r\n\r\nYou’ll be able to catch all of the action from the Jubilee Stadium on Twitter (@GCAFCofficial) and Facebook (GCAFCofficial).
