Gloucester United will play their first A League home game of the 2009-10 season at Kingsholm on Monday evening (kick 7:30pm) against London Wasps with Peter Buxton pencilled to make his comeback from injury.
The starting line up will be confirmed on Monday although Buxton's appearance is largely dependant on whether any injuries are incurred over the weekend.
There should also be the opportunity to see some of Gloucester's young, up and coming stars in action with the likes of Jordi Pasqualin, Jonny May and Charlie Simpson-Daniel set to feature.
Entry is free for Season Ticket Holders or costs £5 for adults with children getting in free of charge.
