Wor U23s are in action twice this week with trips ower the Pennines to Boundary Park, (tooneet) and Prenton Park, Tranmere (v The Liverbirds U23s on Friday)

Az we've said in the past, if we've been to a groond before, then we will give it 'a miss' for resorve/junior games, so 'yours trueleee' wont be there and will be 'at graft' instead!

The forst game iz in The Checkatrade Trophy group stage 'D' and the game on Friday iz in The Premyaa Leegue International Cup!

Prenton Park, the home of Tranmere Rovers woz mee 100th groond to watch The Toon way back in 1991 and Oldham's Boundary Park (groond 53) haz been visited on numerous occasions! (The last one a pre season friendly in 2014)
