A former top flight Spanish footballer will grace the City Ground dugout at tonight’s pre-season friendly against Walsall, it has been confirmed.
Miguel Llera, 39, has just been appointed Academy Manager at the League Two side and the club has confirmed the Spaniard’s first match in charge of the Under-18s will be tonight’s pre-season fixture at Brownsfield Park.
Central defender Llera had an illustrious career including a spell in La Liga with Gimnastic amid stints at top sides in England and Spain, including Alicante and Sheffield Wednesday.
Lichfield City boss Jay Hawkins has set his players a tough pre-season programme and expects no different from tonight’s content.
Entry to tonight’s fixture is £3 adults and £1 concessions.
