This will be a nice game for Paul Hurst to attend...










'I walked in the dressing room. The window was open and I thought that a sea fret had got in. Then I saw smoke billowing from a pipe in the corner of the room...it was my centre-forward. He looked seven stone wet through. He went on to score thirty-odd goals that season.' Lawrie McMenemy on encountering the legend that was Matt Tees.

That was before it became fashionable and lucrative for some to go abroad

That's it in a nutshell.  Really difficult to get 'decent' opposition to come here as they're all touring somewhere.  The downturn in the quality of our pre-season games also ties in with our decline to and stagnation in the fourth/fifth tier.  Not really likely to be deemed a valuable friendly for Prem/Championship sides.

We went to Spain and played two games last year to be fair.

That's a point. When does our tour of the Far East begin? There's a whole new market for stripey shirts to be opened up over there.
