The annual Wellens squad split day has been announced, we will send two seperate teams on the same day to Welling and St. Albans on Tues 16th July.

Still no word yet on a home friendly.

Policing will cost more than the gates bring in

Arsenal U21's will be our final game, but we're having some behind closed doors ones as well, which isn't unusual for us.

We've got Oldham and Telford away plus Derby at home.
Earlier this year we had arranged for a pre season home friendly against Birmingham,but they got relegated so that's finished that one

I've never figured the hot weather training camps in our summer.

Ok for a break in December but I've always thought the adage was train how you play. In which case a trip to Tromso would be more helpful at this time of year.

Team bonding/piss up with the lads I suppose.

We've also got a home game against Stoke lined up, which has definitely caught the attention of fans of a certain vintage. GMP must be delighted

Nothing wrong with like minded fans having a punch up. It's just a bit of pride

We’ve just announced a friendly with Brum at home. From memory I can’t ever remember us playing a friendly against opposition in the same league. Be interesting to see how far apart we are from the title favourites.

They are in denial about being in League One. Imagine if you play them first game..

I'm actually amazed that this friendly is still going ahead, as I mentioned earlier in the thread the game was agreed for this summer sometime earlier this year.
Still I suppose it gives West Mercia's finest a chance to sort out "arrangements" for the real thing

Last summer we played Charlton in a friendly in Spain - then the fixtures came out and we was playing them first game of the season, both clubs wanted to cancel but because everything had already been organised the game was played anyway and finished 1-1.

Either way, everyone was like WTF are we playing eahc other while in the same league?! Think it was more to do with both clubs going abroad, ending up in the same place and needing a game.

We've announced that on 20th July we will play a BCD game against a Premier League side, with details about where it will be held and who against to remain confidential until the game is completed :lol:

No home friendlies for us again, this year its due to various post season events on our pitch and the maintenance on it starting late.

No tour to Scotland (shame).
Main games are Grimsby away, Sheffield United home and Woody's testimonial at home against his new employer Doncaster Rovers. Hope he gets a great turnout out, he was brilliant for us for 9 years.
He would be here now but for Matt Taylor's inferiority complex.

I was hoping we would be back early tbh. After that shambles of a season most of them need it

Nice!

Although aren't they playing PNE the following day so who knows the sort of team they will put out for these games.
Obviously the big guns will be rolled out at Deepdale, and the dregs given a run out in Horwich.

Your forum only has about 10 messages a day on it anyway doesn't it? Can't expect Boltonians to fathom the smartphone.

I take it you're messaging from the prison desktop?

Nah, you can get in the bin with your Huddersfield/ Wigan identi-kit stadium.

No Prison in Bolton. It is Only a Town unlike the Sprawling City that is Preston.
Tell me again why your crowds are less than ours at the state of the art Deepdale???
