Plenty of news today and best of all – mostly positive. Our match against Preston is going to be live on Sky, if you are attending its only £10 for adults and £5 for concessions. As it’s on Sky it’s being moved to Monday 5 August.
We also have another Friendly against Bury on Tuesday 23 July at 7.30pm at Gigg Lane. The club also confirmed the game against Penrith at Frenchfield Park for Saturday 6 July kick-off 3pm.
Transfer news is also good, a fee has been agreed with MK Dons for Gary Mackenzie, all that needs to be sorted is personal term which is always the hard part. There’s also indications that we are close to a deal with Stephen Crainey.
No news about Gary Taylor-Fletcher, only that he’s in Ibiza and appears to be eating and drinking well according to his latest tweet.
In other news Ashley Eastham who was released last year has signed for Bury on a two-year-deal and Mark Halstead signed up for a further year as our number two to Matty Gilks.
