Manchester Giants coach Danny Byrne has added two more dates to the pre-season calendar.

NBL Division 1 team Newcastle University will visit the Trafford Sportsdome on Friday September 7 (7.3pm tip-off) in what will be a restricted capacity game.

The Giants will then visit NBL Division 2 side Liverpool Basketball Club on Sunday September 9. Taking place at Archbishop Beck Sports College, tip-off will be 2pm. Entry will be Adults £2, Children (Under 16) £1.

It’s a repeat of a pre-season game last year when the Giants came away 94-68 victors.
