Pre-season: Havant v Pompey
Pre-season plans, much like everything else at the club, are still 'taking shape', or at least this is what PFC, or should I say Steve Cotterill - who makes it sound like he is on a one man mission to sort this out - are looking at...
The planned American tour is slightly in 'doubt' by the sounds of it although Cotterill has told The News today that Austria, Holland and Germany are 'alternative' options with a base in England also 'possible' but America is still his preferred destination.
A trip to Bournemouth now looks off, although the traditional fixture against Havant is on. This has been confirmed, with the following announced on The Pompey Site...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
Blues Arrange Hawks Friendly
Pompey will take on Havant & Waterlooville in a pre-season friendly at Westleigh Park on Monday, July 11.
The clash with the Blue Square Bet South side will kick-off at 7.30pm.
It is the second match of the Blues' summer programme to be announced - a glamour friendly against Premier League runners-up Chelsea will be played at Fratton Park five days later.
Pompey faced the Hawks in their opening pre-season fixture of last season with David Nugent and Michael Brown scoring in a 2-1 win.
And a young Blues side also won a friendly last November. Joel Ward scored the only goal of the game as Hermann Hreidarsson made his comeback from an Achilles injury.
Ticket information will be provided at a later date.
