2 stories on the official site today:
1 - the Bolton game, which is likely to be a mixture of 1st team and U21 as they have a game at Scunthorpe on the Friday night too
2 - drainage and re-seeding work on the pitch

So, Footy Dave it will be on our sloping grass pitch Big smile

But, will we still have a grass sloping pitch the season after next, or will it be a level plastic one??.

I BELIEVE the Club know , to "really progress" and get into the Football League , we HAVE to have a level pitch.

In reality , a level pitch should take priority over a new Main Stand , IMO.

We need to be seen as a serious "Professional" outfit and it would create a better standard of football to watch / probably LARGER crowds down at The Lamb.

The Club could get some quotes , to level the pitch , to start with and take things from there.

Dear Sir Alf have you applied some scientific statistical analysis in your thinking process regarding larger crowds? Or has it just come with a flick of the wrist lol

I'm not wading into the "a level pitch is the key..." debate again. There just aren't enough hours left in my life but as a general rule on friendlies, am I alone in just not caring? I understand the importance for fitness and developing team shape for management and players but as a season ticket holder who hates missing home games, I'm always surprised at the ease with which I miss a friendly.

The only suitable analogy I can make is it's like bunking off school when you were a kid. Unless you're mental, you wouldn't choose to miss P.E. but given half a chance you'd give Maths a swerve wouldn't you? That's sort of how I feel about friendlies. I wouldn't abolish them, I acknowledge their purpose for existing but they just aren't for me.

Every season I get excited when the friendlies start, but this is clearly brought on more by the fact that I have not seen any football for months, more than the expectation of the friendlies providing entertainment.  In fact, every year, my excitement is quickly replaced by the frustration of watching poor quality friendly football, played by a Tamworth team of trialists I dont recognise or whose names are secret.

I think Pelsall will be a sterner test than that side who played Arsenal last weekend...no shots on goal in the entire game! Ha ha ha ha ha!

Yes it was a bad , but they are probably are still the best Midlands team we have, in terms of overall trophies and crowds, will they shed 200 fans to us after that , No, I would love all Midlands teams to do well, but the word Mid almost says it all.
