FORMER Cork City dynamos Seanie Maguire and Alan Browne will be back at Turner's Cross in July.

The club has announced they are hosting Preston North End in a friendly at 7pm on Monday, July 8.

The Championship outfit has a strong connection to Ireland after recruiting a host of players in recent years, including Cork City's Maguire, Browne and Kevin O'Connor.

O'Connor is currently on loan on Leeside, while Maguire and Browne both excelled in the second tier of the English game last season.

Unfortunately, Browne had to withdraw from Mick McCarthy's Ireland squad this week due to an injury but will be a star attraction for the English side when he returns home.
