I was hoping to play hanley Town aswell in a friendly with them having Louis dodds Ricardo Fuller playing for them. Think I will go the kidsgrove game but won't bother with Castle Town.

Wouldn’t surprise me, got Dicko as well, may have Pope if he decides to call it a day in the EFL levels.

Hopefully by July we can go and watch these games pending a Bojo Burkina Fasan Super duper ten mutations variant not showing up or something!

I suspect we will get games against teams beginning with T. Tiverton, Taunton, Truro and Trabsonspur.

I'll be grateful to be allowed to go to any of those games (maybe not Truro, that's a bit far...)

Taunton and Tiverton confirmed. God I'm good.
Also Bristol City but its behind closed doors so it doesn't count (and is a great shame)

We’ve confirmed Haringey Borough away on July 20th. No surprise as 2 pre-season games were part of the deal which saw Coby Rowe sign for Sutton from Haringey

I like the home. Opinions on the green being re-added to our club colours is mixed but mostly positive and the club have doubled down with even more green this time. We have always had red and white but the third colour was black over the course of the last 30 years under our old owner, but I think we as a fan base want to forget about him and his reign as quickly as possible and the inclusion of the black everywhere is very much an identity of his ownership. We had green in the 80's for a few seasons, it's a unique colour combination that not many teams have and most of our fans seem to like it.

Not a huge fan of the away kit though, too much green. For the green works better as a tertiary or secondary colour, the harsh green with red is a bit of an eyesore IMO. Third shirt is a beauty, has the name of all the season ticket holders who left their money in the club on it, (including mine!). Really that should be the away shirt, it looks much nicer and is much more "Walsall". White primary, red secondary with green tertiary is my personal dream. White shirts red shorts Walsall is a real throwback, even further than the green in the 80's.
Eugh, green. It's a thumbs down from me. Not sure what this has to do with pre season friendlies..

Half expect to see some of the usual suspects included; Brimscombe and Thrupp, Slimbridge and Shortwood...give it time!

First three announced:

Luton (behind closed doors at a neutral venue). I wonder if Dale are after borrowing Gabriel Osho again....

Flyde away (we seem to go there every year, but to be fair it's a decent enough ground and easy to get to). Discussions ongoing as to whether fans allowed.

Fleetwood at home, with fans.

Swansea and Posh at home. We’re asking both sets of fans not to attend to try and starve the crook out of the club.

Added a couple more - Rotherham (h)
Celtic (a) - fancy this, there's some good pubs in Staley Vegas, and it will be our youth team/fringe players, so nice to spot the next talent coming through.

I've been to Celtic Park on a Champions League night, difficult to be beaten.
Wish I had that experience, to be fair (or at Ibrox, I'm neutral on that particular argument). Got a ticket to Man U v Roma some years ago, and that was a cracking atmosphere, although I'm by no means a fan of the Trafford Black Sox in normal circumstances.

Same, my Scottish allegiance is to Hearts but to see top class football in a full raucous very impressive stadium is a wonderful experience.

Not a patch on the County Ground mind but decent nonetheless!!
