United Set To Spend The Summer In Ireland

United Set To Spend The Summer In Ireland

Dundee United will head to the Republic of Ireland this summer, to begin preparations for the 2008/09 campaign.

In recent years, United have arranged pre-season tours of Holland, Germany and England, but Ireland (specifically Dublin) has always been one of the club`s preferred location.

During the 2000/01 season, Paul Sturrock took the 1st team to Dublin for a week, playing friendlies against Bohemians (L2-0), Bray Wanderers(W2-0) and St. Patrick's Athletic (W2-0).

This summer, United are heading back to Dublin (14th - 16th July), but no matches have yet been announced.

"We will be going to Dublin for a few days and will be lining up a couple of games," Craig Levein told Setanta Sports.

United currently have several Irish born players at the club, including top-scorer Noel Hunt, defender Sean Dillon, striker Jon Daly and Willo Flood (who is on-loan from Cardiff City).
