English League Cup runners-up Bradford City will play Bohemians in a friendly game at Dalymount Park on Saturday July 20th (KO 1pm).

The game could see the return to Airtricity League turf of Carl McHugh, formerly of Dundalk.

The Donegal man played a pivotal part in the Bantams’ run to Wembley last season, helping them knock out three Premier League clubs – Wigan, Arsenal and Aston Villa – before Phil Parkinson’s side eventually fell at the final hurdle against Swansea.

The 20-year-old’s season highlight was netting an 88th-minute goal in their semi-final first-leg 3-1 win over Villa, which proved crucial in an eventual 4-3 aggregate giant-killing.

And despite having to be content with a place in the Bantams’ next trip to Wembley – their League One promotion-clinching play-off success – McHugh also capped off a remarkable season by winning his first caps for Noel King’s Ireland Under-21s, and also won the¬†Football League Young Player of the Month Award for January.
