We continue our build up to the season when we play a game on mainland Europe for only the second time in our history on Saturday.
We’re heading to Eindhoven, in order to play PSV De Jong, the “reserve” team of Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven at their state-of-the-art training complex just outside the town. De Jong play in the Dutch First Division, one below their Premier, and include several players with great potential. It’s the first game on mainland Europe since Quakers played Den Bosch in the mid70s. Not many fans, if any, went to Den Bosch on that occasion, but there will be at least 200 making the journey across the North Sea to enjoy a unique Darlo weekend. If you can’t make it, there’ll be coverage of the game on the club website and twitter account.
Here are some details on the players in the PSV DE Jong squad.
