THE Shrimps’ pre-season friendly match versus Bolton Wanderers scheduled for Tuesday, 17th July has had to be cancelled.
The reason for this is the Globe Arena pitch, which has undergone major refurbishment works over the close season, is not yet ready to host a football match. Over the past two weeks, the contractor has been back to site and further works have been carried out. Our groundstaff are working extremely hard to ensure that the playing surface will be ready for the commencement of the forthcoming season.
The two clubs have arranged an alternative "behind closed doors" game to be played at Bolton Wanderers’ training ground.
