We announced one the other week against FC United (though it might be cancelled because of the Manchester lockdown)

Just noticed that a few have started offering friendlies on iFollow so maybe they can now.

As far as I am aware, all of ours are going to be behind closed doors, and I doubt we will have many fans clamouring to attend them!

Most of ours aren't anything of note or otherwise out of the ordinary, but we've somehow ended up getting Chelmsford City at home in a friendly on the 5th of September, which seems a bit of a random one given the travelling involved for Chelmsford (you'd have thought they'd have more local options, rather than having to travel to Cambridgeshire for a friendly against a Step 4 side).

Lost 2-0 at Carrington to Fleetwood. It was our first game in five months, and definitely looked that way, very little sharpness. Whereas the opponents already had a friendly & were recently involved in playoffs.

Funnily enough County looked more coherent in the second half after changing the whole XI, and included a handful of players who've been released but are still training with us, they were probably more used to each others' play.

Rumour is (nothing confirmed anywhere) we're playing Rochdale this forthcoming Saturday

Nothing heard at our end, no friendlies announced although our opponents have tweeted about a friendly (behind closed doors) at Atherton this Wednesday. Not even Laburnum Rovers, feckin Colls. Apparently someone in Atherton has a photo device thingy, and they're going to stream it...

Lost 2-0 to Rochdale at EP on Saturday.

Again with two different XIs each half. First half we held Dale to 0-0, through luck more than anything, they rattled the woodwork a couple of times and County failed to muster a single shot. Williams looked nifty down the left flank until he went off after about 25 minutes due to fitness, and the new boy Gilmour looked decent in the middle.

And, like last week, the second half XI looked more of a team. Alex Reid looked a real handful up top, youngster Downing did a nice job at the back too. Otherwise it was an uninspiring performance but I'm trying not to read too much into things given the whole situation, normally the preseason would start with putting 8 or 9 past Cheadle Heath Nomads/Stockport Town but there's only a small window to get games against these (much fitter) League teams. Easy to forget there's still 6 weeks until our season starts

Melksham Town 0-2 Chippenham Town.

Quite a decent game for Chippenham, as they prepare for the 2020/21 National League South season, with a total of 200+ supporters able to watch all the action following the #LetFansIn movement.

Produced some video of the game, feel free to share and leave feedback:
