Title: Pre-season Friendlies
Post by: Mallard on May 30, 2021, 08:47:25 PM
When will the list of these be coming ?

I seem to recall SC said there was 3 (?) League clubs coming to the Walks.  Lot of teams have announced some if not all.   I see Peterborough are visiting Setch at Bedford Town for one.

All the pre season games need to be a good workout given we will have a completely new squad...pointless playing anyone other than EFL, NL and NLN/S.......we need to hit the ground running at the start of the season.

Really hope we are not doing it on that basis. In recent times our friendlies have been pretty poor .

SC has said there are 3 League Clubs visiting for Friendlies so cannot be described as poor

Probably  depends when pitch is ready thought it was said on streaming on Saturday that they were seeing someone this to week to try and finally sort out problems with pitch.

Wouldn't be surprised if Leyton Orient aren't one of them. UTL

Posh are playing no friendlies at home as they need urgent work on the pitch so that surely has to be one.

Speaking of Peterborough United. Have we signed FBT yet?  What's keeping us!
Title: Re: Pre-season Friendlies
Post by: KES80 on June 05, 2021, 01:31:00 PM
Cameron Norman is probably more likely Mick, but if FBT is happy to come down two notches I am sure everyone would welcome him ( ifwe can afford him !)

Cameron Norman has gone to Newport County and Peterborough first team at The Walks on 3rd August!

"Peterborough have, of course, recently been promoted to the Championship after finishing runners-up under manager Darren Ferguson and will be bringing their first team squad along".

I wonder if they are aware of that?    :laughcry:


Looking forward to it.  :scarf:

Strange game is football. Released by a club who ended up lower in league two than the club who have snapped him up. Shame we couldn't have gotten both Cameron and FBT.

There's nothing on that page. I hope that's not a bad omen.   :dontknow:

Downham got a friendly as a thank you for allowing Lynn Res to play their home games at the Memorial Field.   So understandable that Heacham will hopefully get a money spinner out of helping the club out.

As the Club have done away with a Reserve side I assume no Academy players will be loaned to play for  Heacham at level 8 (?).

Has it been said anywhere what the cost of the friendlies are going to be?

Only asking as Lowestoft have announced they will be playing Ipswich and tickets will be priced at 5.00.

I know a lot of supporters feel that ticket prices are usually too expensive, but 5.00 seems a bit on the low side to me.   :dontknow:
Title: Re: Pre-season Friendlies
Post by: admin on June 18, 2021, 07:51:53 PM
From the home page:
"Ticket prices for the Peterborough and MK Dons games are:
Terracing - adults 15, over 65s 13, under 16s 4. Seats - 17, 15 and 7.
Premium seating (yellow seats but not directors box) 18.
Hospitality to include hot food, programme, team sheet, parking, central line seating 45.
Ticket pricing for the Norwich City game has yet to be announced."
