We played Derby a few years back at BP too in pre-season.


Dont need to now we usually get to play them in league cup beginning of the season.

Obviously going to be an interesting pre season in all sorts of ways, but 1 aspect hasn't been discussed widely. IMHO Jolley's fire fighting 12 months ago left him little time to organise a proper pre season, and i think this contributed greatly to our poor start.He's always denied he got it wrong in terms of the pre seasons friendlies, both in terms of quality and quantity, so it'll be interesting to compare it.
last season there were only 6 friendlies in about 6 weeks, 2 of which were against Cleethorpes Town and 1 against Gainsborough.

in terms of transfers he signed 7 in June, 3 in July and 4 in late August


He recently said on Humberside ( when trying to answer a question about our indifferent form in his usual politician style )  that the beginning of the season was one of our poorer runs and he said that they would be reviewing what they did last pre season to see what lessons they could learn.
Not an out and out admission of getting it wrong but the best example of an acknowledgement it wasnt good.

I always think a pre-season tour is good as it allows the new group to get together and mix without other commitments. As good as a trip abroad would be the cost would impact on the playing budget.

An 8 team tournament played over about a week with a guarantee of 3 games would ensure all players got some minutes.

And ffs, why can't we organise a game against aalst? A sort of preseason trophy every year? Doubtful there'd be trouble.

Maybe a tad too forward thinking!


I travelled to Aalst a while back and took in a game and it really is a very poor level. With respect to them, they would get annihilated by any EFL side with the exception of Scunthorpe. That said, we managed to lose to Cleethorpes Town twice (I think) last pre season. I'd say Aalst are a similar standard.

Would love a game vs Grimsby in pre season, preferably at your place so me and me pals can have an excuse for a urine up.


The club that simply wouldn't DIE!

We will be back. One day. Someday, somehow!

Groundsman say's first game middle of July on new pitch, two week before first league game. So max two home games that could include home draw against Gainsborough in the Lincs Cup.


If the football is bad you can always watch the gulls.

Has the result been decided already?  


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.
