If you haven’t seen them the pre-season list is here.
I have blogged about the Leeds game in my previous post so won’t spend any further time on it except no doubt the sharp eyed amongst you will have noticed that we do not have a game against Dagenham & Redbridge. This was a fixture originally planned but one that had to move because of the Leeds date, all being well we will play that game next pre-season.
The game against Watford on 18 July will be Gordon Bartlett’s testimonial. Gordon is a living Wealdstone legend (does this qualify as a vote of confidence?) and holding this game is long overdue. I know that Watford are sending a team to Hampton & Richmond Borough on the same day but hopefully we will once again a good sized crowd to watch us host a Watford side for the third year running.
Our plan will be to hold a similar testimonial match for Leo Morris next year.
Watford and Leeds isn’t a bad start and otherwise we have a good balance of fixtures to get us ready for the new season – now all we have to do is to sell hundreds of tickets for both the ‘big’ matches.
