Berkhamsted get their pre-season fixtures under way on Saturday when they entertain Proformance Global in a competitive first friendly at Broadwater.

The visitors are a group of out of contract European players who will be trying hard to impress watching scouts as they bid to get back into the professional game.

One such player is ex-Arsenal academy player Arinse Uade. Players of such quality are rarely seen on non-league grounds, so the club are hopeful that the fixture will be well supported by local fans. Kick-of is at 3pm.

Berkhamsted have re-signed most of last season’s squad and have also had a few new players at pre-season training.

New signings include Dan Weeks from Sun Sports and winger Aaron Nash-Barker.

The Comrades’ next pre-season friendly will be at Division One side Winslow United on Tuesday, July 21.

Broadwater should also be busy on Sunday when Watford Ladies entertain Durham with a 1pm kick-off in Women’s Super League 2.
