3 decent pre-season games thus far....they'll certainly give the lads a good workout.
I'm pretty sure we'll have a very competitive squad by the time the Owls arrive, should be good games.
Aswell as the Radcliffe game that'll get squeezed in, let's hope we can tempt a Prem side down to Gigg too.

well done Flickers...good matches for a warm up. Gad to see Dale coming over and a test against your mate...well done.

How about Burnley? Seems we have a decent relationship with them?
Should be decent gates as well!!

All good fixtures booked in so far I suppose it would be out of the question that our club might attract the Manchester giants down to the JD stadium,thought not oh well it was worth a try.Yes Raccy,Newly promoted Altrincham,,Southpor
t and maybe Burnley Are more likely candidates.

The outstanding Final of The Lancashire Senior Cup against Wigan Athletic has also to be slotted in somewhere.

Think we all know most of the top Prem teams go abroad for pre-season now to fulfill their "promotional/sponsor
ship duties", unless you want us to play Utd or City reserves/kids?....we
ll i don't.

Think we only got Everton down because of Phil Neville...i reckon we're more likely to squeeze a game in against Uddersfield than anyone else.

And as for the Lancs Senior Cup, that's for the Development squad, so shouldn't really effect most of the 1st team fixtures/players.
