Town Lining Up Five or Six Pre-Season Friendlies
Monday, 3rd Aug 2020 15:00

Town are looking to play five or six pre-season friendlies ahead of their 2020/21 campaign with those games set to be played locally.

The Blues returned to training a fortnight ago ahead of the new season which will start on September 12th, although it’s understood there is a possibility that a Leasing.com Trophy match may be scheduled for the previous weekend. EFL fixture lists will be confirmed within the next few weeks.

Town’s general manager football operations Lee O’Neill says the friendlies, which will be behind closed doors, will be played close to home, probably against the likes of Colchester and Southend from League Two and local non-league sides.

“We have had a lot of requests for games and it’s a case of confirming the pre-season programme now,” he told the club site.

“It is going to be a different pre-season. We are not going abroad, there won’t be a training camp. The focus will be around the training ground and we won’t be travelling very far for games.

“There has been a lot of interest from local clubs and we’d love to be able to sort something out with all of them but that is not going to be possible.”

As reported, Town’s development squad returned to training last week, while the full-time scholars are due back this week.

Think Lazio lost our little respect we had for them a long time ago in regard to preseason friendly debacle. Shame but heyho

We have more chance of playing Ludo

Hope it isn't Barnet. Not going there again just to scrape a win against a team with "Trialist #3" coming on as Sub who actually plays better than half the Town side.
