Porthleven AFC will welcome Premier League opposition to Gala Parc in July.

Newly-promoted Cardiff City, managed by Neil Warnock, will come to Cornwall as part of their pre-season preparations.

The match will take place at Gala Parc on Thursday, July 19, with kick-off at 7pm.

The club has priced tickets at £8 for the game, while children can get in for just £2.

The game is listed as an under-23 fixture for the Bluebirds, but the line-up is expected to be a mix of first-team and under-23 players.

Porthleven chairman Deryk Heywood revealed that he had contacted Warnock about the possibility of bringing his side to the town a while ago.

“I wrote to him [Warnock] three months ago because I thought I will get in there first, and [Porthleven manager] Alan Carey was at Bodmin when he was there before,” he said.

Deryk also confirmed that there were plans for City to hold an open training session at Gala Parc on Friday, July 20.

City won automatic promotion from this year’s Sky Bet Championship after finishing second to Wolves, despite amassing 90 points.

Porthleven will know how that feels, after finishing sixth in this season’s SWPL Division 1 West despite a strong title challenge which just tailed off in the final weeks of the season.

The match will form part of the Welsh side's pre-season tour of Cornwall, with the club also set to face Truro City, St Austell, Bodmin Town and Liskeard Athletic during their stay.

Warnock told Cardiff City’s official website: “After last summer, we decided to continue my lovely relationship with Cornwall for a week.

“This time, the under-23s will be playing every other night along with the first-team, so that everyone in the squad can get enough minutes under their belt that week.

“Last year was a success and I’m expecting even more of our fans to come down for a holiday and what will be a great, family-oriented week!”

Warnock has frequently brought his teams to Cornwall in pre-season over the years, with his previous visit coming just 12 months ago when Cardiff took on Bodmin Town at their Priory Park ground.

Bodmin has been his regular port of call, visiting with each of Crystal Palace, Queens Park Rangers and Leeds United.

He also brought his Sheffield United side to face Penryn Athletic in the summer of 2003, which attracted a record crowd of 1,400 to Kernick.
