Smile Pre-season friendlies

On Twitter - not that I use it - that Stanley will play 5 home friendlies in 15 days, starting from 9th July

Teams to be announced, at least four Championship Clubs (is there a hidden message there?)

Why, who were you expecting at the Wham, PSG or Real Madrid?

Re: Pre-season friendlies

Liverpool and Chelsea would be good, using our connections with those Clubs

Re: Pre-season friendlies

Joe;

PL clubs good abroad to earn silly amounts of money; you know that.

PL clubs would need a massive police and security presence and with us only being able to accomodate 5k fans; we'd need to be charging high prices to cover these costs.

We've asked loads of top clubs to come BUT for a variety of good reasons they weren't available.

So go on with your ex Director hat on Joe; who would be sensible clubs to ask for the 23/24 PSF campaign?

Others feel free to throw in suggestions and I'll add them to a "possible list" or try and explain why in my view it's very unlikely.

PS I've asked Aston Villa but the dates I offered they were abroad

Re: Pre-season friendlies

Well, if the Premiership can go all ‘international’ in the pre-season, why can’t Stanley use its ‘connections’?
In the absence of Third Lanark, how about Inverness Caledonian Thistle?

Mark, I get what you are saying and was always thankful that you were the one doing all the worrying about things like this, so the rest of did not have too and you are very good at it

All I have said - in answer to a question - is who I would like to see

Re: Pre-season friendlies

You could try the Jockeens maybe, I know (going back a good few years mind) that Rangers came to Germany & played against Preussen Munster & SF Lotte neither were & still aren't big clubs. So if they could blag games against Rangers I'm sure Stanley could manage it to.
