Another friendly, this time Bristol City on Tuesday 27th July, ko 1pm. Unfortunatekly it'll be at the C&F so no spectators

this announcement also includes an away game at Weston Super Mare on 6 July T 7.45pm (which was news to me)

PSF = Meh, but as someone correctly pointed out to me before on this matter: PSF's are more for the benefit of the manager, coaches and players rather than spectators.

I hope the camera position will be on the halfway line not off to the side, as that made the earlier feed from the C&F a difficult watch !

They never used to be for that purpose only, as I expect you'll recall. Before the PL was formed we had decent PSF opposition rocking up at SJP, attendances when the bigger names turned up of 1,500-2,000 were not unusual. PSFs against 6th/7th/8th tier teams were less prevalent back then.

I remember a pre season friendly at Sticker FC, when Alan Ball opened their new changing rooms. It was our first glimpse of Ronnie Robinson who we allegedly signed for £25000! The highlight for me was Alan Ball signing my ‘programme’. A cherished City memory…….
