PRESTON DEAD END 1 TOON XX11 1

Posted '10:00am bells' Sunday 23rd July 2017

"MITRO'S ON FIRE!--TOON FAN IN MIRE!"
ONE OF THE TOON'S 'FOOT' SOLDIERS!

The most memorable thing aboot this trip to Preston woz the news that a Toon fan had jumped off a pub roof and broke hiz ankles!---but after a trip to the local RVI he insisted on gannin to the match in a wheelchair! (PS: Its quite normal for some Toon fans to do these things!)
Mitro opened the scorin' on 8 minutes but that woz the most memorable thing aboot the match az the home side equalised before the break
3,000 Toon fans were in the stands (plus 1 wheelchair at the front!) in the 7,000 plus crowd

In the 2nd half a host of subs came on and aall told 22 players were used by Rafa!
These pre season games are turnin into a farce az Preston aalso used loads of subs.
They are only now glorified trainin' sessions in wor opinion!

Toon team: It will take aall day to type their names oot amd aa havvent got time at the mo!
