PREVIEW: Pre-season rolls on against Hume City


Melbourne City FC will face Victorian NPL side Hume City on Tuesday night as the Club steps up its preparations for the 2014/15 Hyundai A-League Season.

Following last Tuesday’s Westfield FFA Cup exit, Melbourne City FC will turn its attention to a busy pre-season schedule which includes trips to Alice Springs, Lismore, Bendigo and Tuesday night’s clash at Broadmeadows Valley Park.

The squad will head into the game with a clean bill of health after a tiring 120 minutes last week and will look to test the full depth of the side in the Club’s first local hit-out since arriving back from the UK.

International marquee Robert Koren could potentially play a role in the pre-season fixture with Head Coach John van’t Schip wary of the short period Koren has been training with the side in the country.

Hume City’s latest result was a 1-0 loss to the Ballarat Red Devils on Sunday afternoon with the Broadmeadows-based side sitting 5th in the Victorian NPL.

With a mix of youth and experience, Hume City include the likes of Richie Cardozo, Christopher Cristaldo and Kliment Taseski who have all played professionally at national league level.

This is the perfect opportunity for fans and members to see Melbourne City FC in action this pre-season with entry for members FREE.
