The pre-season build-up to the 2015/16 season for Aitor Karanka's squad is set to kick-off at York City on Saturday July 11 (12pm).

Bootham Crescent will play host to the club's first senior friendly of the summer as Karanka's squad return to action just six weeks on from the Play-Off Final defeat at the hands of Norwich City.
