This week’s friendlies: Kidderminster, Redditch & Burton

Exile @ 10:11 pm Sunday 29 July 2012

So, after the fund raiser against the Dingles that taught us nothing there’s three more games this week for Deano to run the rule over his new signings and prospects. Better hope one of them is a big, physical target man, as we’re missing that particular type of player, and our forward line looks lightweight at the moment – physically at least, according to fans who’ve seen the formations and players so far.

Tuesday sees Walsall travel to the Harriers for a 7.45 kick off at the splendidly named Aggborough Stadium. There’s bound to be some pubs nearby as there’s nothing else to do in Kidderminster. The King & Castle is right next to the station, Harriers Arms by the ground and there’s a supporters club too. Info taken from internet, at the rate pubs are closing not sure if they’re still there.

Wednesday is a visit to Redditch at Valley Stadium (I think). This’ll be a cut down ‘Walsall XI’ rather than a squad game. Again, a 7.45pm kick off. Bar at the ground, or try the Golden Cross (Unicorn Hill, near the station) for a jar.

Saturday is a friendly away at Burton Albion‘s Pirelli Stadium. Should be a good day out, with a 3pm kick off spoiling a tour of Burton’s excellent pubs. Take your pick of the pubs round here – traditionalists should find Cooper’s, which is legendary. Apparently.

Have fun those who are going. If you know anyone who’s proper nawtee, leave them at home, we don’t want delinquents at a family club.


Preseason update

Exile @ 9:31 pm Monday 01 June 2009

Walsall will play Mansfield at their gaff, on Tuesday 28 July. Here’s hoping Antler Gerrard will be available as we look to make Mansfield pay deerly for challenging us. Fingers crossed we’re fresh for the game and not in a rut, and the players are all hart. Hope we dont regret this fixture with hind-sight, or we’ll be eating umble pie.

Later that week we face Rushall Olympic away on Saturday, but there’s not so many puns in that one, so I won’t doe any.
