Our best hope of getting a ‘big’ team is that Harry Rednapp comes out of retirement. He’s a big fan of Woodbury Park and the bookies in Sidmouth!

What happened to the days of playing Chelsea and Everton etc in pre season, I used to love that when I was a kid. I still remember Barry McConnell scoring to beat Vialli and Gullits Chelsea 2-1!
Most Premier League teams aren't interested in these friendlies anymore. If you can get one to play you, it will be a "representative XI" that usually consists of U23 players with a handful of reserve players. They also tend to want about 50% of the gate revenue (not profits). I remember when we past played Tottenham in a Pre-Season game, the Club pretty much lost money on the fixture.

Hope we can get at least one home friendly this year maybe against a championship club.
