The sides will play in two 75-minute matches, the first of which kick off at 2pm.

A fixture between the two clubs has often formed part of the pre-season schedule and this season it will see Jack Taylor and Ronnie Edwards to face their old club.

Barnet endured a difficult campaign last time out. They finished 22nd but were not relegated due to the resignation of Macclesfield and the fact Dover’s results were expunged from the league, as well as the decision to deny promotion to clubs at tier seven of the pyramid.
