BURNLEY's Under-23s will be reunited with former boss Michael Duff after another pre-season game for the youngsters has been confirmed.

The Clarets Development Squad, now coached by Steve Stone, will travel to face Duff's Cheltenham Town at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium on Saturday, July 27.

Duff ended his 14-year association with the Clarets last September, leaving his job as U23s coach to take up a first managerial post at his hometown club.

The former defender played for Burnley for 12 years and made a total of 342 appearances, scoring seven goals in that time.

The game promises to be a tough test for the Clarets youngsters, with The Robins beginning their League Two campaign the following weekend.

A trip to Poland is on the agenda for the young Clarets this weekend as preparations for the new season well and truly get underway.

It's a first overseas trip for the Clarets at this level as they as they look to put in some high-intensity training as part of their summer schedule.

Stone's squad will be based near Poznan at a high-class sporting complex used by the Portuguese national side ahead of their successful Euro 2012.

Burnley will end their near week-long stay with a game against Polish top-flight side Pogoń Szczecin II, in Opalenica, on the outskirts of Poznan, on Saturday, July 13.

The Clarets return to play four games ahead of the new season. Stone's side will again go to Stalybridge Celtic and visit Curzon Ashton – the Clarets' home venue at U23 level.

And there is also a trip to Bamber Bridge, another venue used last season, in a game which the EvoStik Premier club plans to use as a fundraiser for the Lennie Johnrose Trust, after hosting a fixture between Burnley and Swansea City former players in November of last year in aid of the ex-Clarets' midfielder's fight against Motor Neurone Disease.
