Saturday's Friendly Off
Thursday, 13th Aug 2020 15:41
Town's opening pre-season friendly is off, TWTD has learned.
The Blues were due to play the first match of their 2020/21 preparations away from home against unnamed opposition on Saturday but we understand the fixture will not now take place for reasons beyond the club's control.
That proposed fixture had been arranged to replace a game against Southend, the League Two side having pulled out as they felt they wouldn’t be ready to play a game at this stage in their pre-season programme.
Town will now start their friendlies with the double header at Colchester next Tuesday, a match which the League Two club is streaming live.
The Blues now appear set to play four games, one at home, with a trip to face Tottenham at their new stadium pencilled in for Saturday 22nd August.

In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
Happy Highbury as Town Head to Wembley by clivebleedingthomas
As if going to an FA Cup semi-final was not stressful enough, I had added stress. I travelled on a Supporters Club coach, on board many families, including my father and my wife
