Should be more or less the starting line up for the season bar some tinkering. With luck a new striker in there too.

I'm glad they've sorted this as it looked like there was a bit of a gap with no game in the run up to Bromley. This should be pretty competitive I hope.

I thought we might have picked a game with an u23 game…be interesting given you’d imagine Chesterfield will be a bit of rival next year…

I think Hurst said he wanted a game against a Conference side to give us that little bit of a nod as to what we're going to be up against.

Good choice for a final main pre-season game.


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.

Not sure when the U23 season starts and I thought similar but U23 teams don't play anything like how teams at our level play. I guess we don't really have a choice because the EFL starts 2 weeks before and National League North/South starts that day.

It is unusual but it's not like we will be giving any secrets away because opposition teams watch us play anyway.

Don't normally play someone from our division, looking forward to going to this game.

This is certainly unusual - can't recall us playing anyone from the same division pre season before. (Come to that I can't recall any one else playing another team from the same division pre season).
However we don't face Chesterfield again until mid December.
This time I assume PH & Co are looking outside the traditional box to assess our performance against another promotion favourite.

Notts County are playing Solihull on that day too, so we might end up seeing a few more teams from our division playing each other.
