Ah the requisite "play a handful of close season games against East London and Essex opponents" There'll be no glamour games you can understand that and would expect further additions to the list being say Braintree, Colchester, Dagenham et cetera. The latter would be a distinct possibility given association with Alf Ramsey.

Shame it's not possible to travel over the North Sea and take in some contests against maybe Ajax, Feyenoord or Anderlecht or they could make the trip to us. It's feasible is it not but once again maybe it's just too fanciful thinking. May have happened at some time or another but when we're not properly involved (and) in games of this nature some don't focus as they should or could be forgiven for any relevant oversights etc.

Domestic seasons now end in April and begin in July ? The game's going to hell in a hand-basket...

Disclaimer: Thats “midges”. Small annoying b*stard insects. Not “midgets”. Just before the small people put in a complaint.

Disclaimer 2: Please let there be no complaints about Disclaimer 1 and it even being a reason to be a disclaimer in the first place.

You know what Marko, last Two years been up to the Highlands for a week, first year March and last year August, never seen so much as a single Midgey despite all the horror stories, I do have my Avon skin so soft at the ready just in case.

I did however see a Midget in Oban munching on a whacking great portion of Fish and Chips, the greedy b*stard.

We were at Torvaig Campsite on Skye couple years ago and prior to arriving I said no danger am I wearing the midgey net on my head. I’ll look like an a$$hole.
Had the midgey net on my head three minutes after getting out the car. Was feckin biblical!!

I’ve not seen a mosquito in Spain so far this summer which is somewhat strange, maybe they’ve all died of Covid or the jab fends them off. Hope I’ve not tempted fate.

Decent 7-0 win today in the 60min Needham game, can’t ask for more than that and good to see 22 players getting 30mins each.

Also nice to see some of the new lads finding the net.
Good run out for the boys.

Good to get some goals no matter who the opposition is, we'd soon hear plenty about it if we only scored One or Two :lol:

Him and Jackson are not quite ready yet after their injures last season. Probably see them in the latter friendlies.

:roll: Did anyone go to see the Needham Market v Ipswich pre-season friendly game today ?? Ipswich won 1-7 Chaplin hat trick, two 30 min games tow different sides each half plus a penalty shoot-out for fun
