I see that quite a few clubs have already arranged friendlies for the pre-season period. Do you think
it's too soon or the sooner the better?
Wouldn't mind a game against Karl Rose's old side, not bothered if it's home or away. Notice they've
been moved from south to the north, which means more games against Yorkshire based sides. Probably
only miss the fixtures against Brigg. But might play the oldest team in Lincolnshire in cup competitions
or in a friendly, seems rare when they don't meet at some point in a season.
Think it about time the Blues played Hemsworth at Fitzwilliam. Glasshoughton another club Athletic don't
play very often.

We played Glass a few seasons ago Blade and it was free to get in as well.

Any games would be nice? I figure a game against Goole would be a given, and one against Wakefield.

Wakefield or Ossett Town, either would do at the same ground. Wouldn't mind Albion as I haven't been
there before.

I probably couldn't get home comfortably by public transport or was watching Sheff Utd.

A good selection, Blue stan. Don't like Gainsborough, someone nicked my double Jack Daniels and coke in a pub there.
I haven't been to Tadcaster to watch football, seem to remember going fishing there though many years ago. Don't think I
caught anything. I wouldn't mind Maltby now they have turned The Queens into a Weatherspoons. Dinnington another team
Frickley hardly ever play and I have never even travelled through it to somewhere else let alone step foot in. Doesn't have
a railway station though.

If you do play Dinnington there is a bus service from Sheffield to Dinnington. Also this service goes through Kiveton Park, so you could catch the train to Kiveton Park and catch the bus from there. I imagine it's about a 10-15 minute bus journey from Kiveton. Last time I went to Dinnington was in April for an U19's game, poured with rain!!

Thanks for the information, Finchley Tiger, will write it down in my notebook. There a bus direct from Balby to Dinnington
via Maltby, but the train might be a better bet. I once had a very long and entertaining conversation with Dinnington's
manager when he was scouting at Hallam. A very likeable man, knows his football - likes tall players in his side in all areas
of the field.
Would if I could, SMS, train would be good. Been on two today, along with three buses and several trams.
Another one pub town I am told, Dinnington. Almost forgot, I got a lift in a car to the hospital early this morning, for
yet another blood test. Travelled to the majority of the matches I watched this season by car and all of Frickley's at
home toward the end of the season.
I see that Ferriby have already arranged seven friendlies, making Frickley look tortoise like in the arranging fixtures
department.
