Plans for replacement friendly

1 year ago By Rob Overfield

Alan and Martin working to arrange another match...

SUPPORTERS have been asking what will replace the cancelled friendly with Leyton Orient at The Beveree on Saturday, July 22.

While Dowse and Martin Tyler are still firming up a fixture, we can confirm that any replacement game will be an away game (hopefully with access for supporters).

The loss of the Orient match does have the advantage of preserving the pitch, where the club has had problems with the goalmouth at the clubhouse end during the close season.

It has not responded as well as the rest of the surface and, at the time of writing, still had some bare patches.

If necessary, the club would have to turf the area, but initial costings suggest this would be at considerable expense. Frankly, it’s money we would rather spend elsewhere.

As soon as a replacement fixture is confirmed, we will let you know on the site and on our social media accounts.

Where next?

Dowse 'satisfied' with Walton workout Another 0-0 preseason result, but Dowse is happy so far.
