In for Mackenzie and PNE on Sky

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.

The grass is growing, Evo’s off and we’re off to York

Right, time to get this blog going again. The season’s long gone, we know who we will be facing next year, however we’ve no pitch and hardly enough players for a team.

I’m going to start updating the site regularly just with bits of news from here and there. Hopefully it will be every other day!

So the pitch is on its way to being redone, in the latest of very technical updates on the official site it explained how layers have been taken off, sand has been oxygenated etc etc. It seems like the club are trying to show how creating a football pitch is a pretty technical task, after many fans last year couldn’t understand the problems we were having.

Interestingly the cod heads down the road are also putting in a new pitch, due to “problems” last season.

On the players front it looks like Evo is going to be training with Blackburn at the start of the season to win a contract. Good luck to him, a bold move by Ince to let him go considering Gary MacKenzie and Kirk Broadfoot hasn’t signed. Also one the way out could be Eardley who’s off to Birmingham.

Good news about captain Barry Ferguson might sign another year after a stop start season.  We’ve also got a pre game again York on Saturday July 20th. York are managed by Nigel Worthington, (Aka Worthless – for younger readers he’s one of the worst managers we’ve had in recent years, Appleton / Hendry the other contender). It’s £12 on the gate for an adult which is a bit pricey for a pre-season knock-a-bout.

Names we’ve been linked with this week, Kevin Davies from Bolton free agent – No thanks,  Aussie defender Michael Thwaite (who once scored and did this). So not a lot going on with plugging the gaping holes in the squad.
