It’s all go at Gigg Lane ahead of the new season

Whilst the Gaffer puts his players through their final few days of training ahead of the new season he is also putting the latest batch of trialists through their paces. The backroom staff at the club are busy making the final preparations for a new campaign to make sure we are as ready as can be.

Season tickets are now ready for collection with the girls in the ticket office working as fast as they possibly can to process just under 2,000 season tickets. The Fans have been filling the car park all day as they start to collect them to make sure they are ready for the big day. Please remember there are only 1 day left at the discounted price!

Ground staff are making their final steps in getting the pitch ready, the surface has been cut this morning and edges have been tidied.  The pitch will be marked on Friday before the nets are erected on Saturday morning.

The first new look programme is well on the way to completion.  We have a new look this season, with a host of new features throughout the 84 page production, plus a special one off cover for the first game of the season.

The maintenance staff are working hard on getting the old place ready for another tough campaign.  Pictures are being put on walls, the last drops of paint are drying and the builders continue to progress with all the refurbishments throughout the ground.

Sky Sports News and BBC North West Tonight have both been to the club this week to record features as they cannot believe the buzz about the place, plus we have been one of the busiest Clubs in the transfer market.

More updates to follow as we draw close to the big day
