Swifts boss Julian Dicks set to welcome former club Wivenhoe in Tuesday night friendly

SWIFTS manager Julian Dicks will face his former side Wivenhoe Town in a friendly at the Aspen Waite Arena on Tuesday evening (March 2).

Julian (pictured by Alan Edmonds) started his managerial career with the Dragons in January 2009 before moving on to take charge of Grays in the Conference National.

Tuesday’s friendly comes after Swifts moved up to third in the Bostik North table with a home win over Romford on Saturday, and ahead of a trip to Tilbury on the weekend which will begin a five-game run-in.

Wivenhoe, who are managed by ex-Swifts youth and reserve team coach Gary Monti, are currently 14th in the Step 6 Eastern Counties Division One South table.

Kick-off at the Aspen Waite Arena is at 7.45pm, and admission will be £5 for adults, £3 concessions with under-16s admitted for free.
