This week saw us announce two more pre-season friendlies, as well as a training camp in Dorset, and work also began on the Roots Hall pitch.
Blues added a friendly against Vanarama National League South Side Weymouth on Friday 12th July before spending some time away from the training ground in five days after.
The squad will also play a behind closed doors game on the Wednesday before they travel home.
We also confirmed a home pre-season friendly against Millwall. More details can be found here.
Our pre-season schedule currently is as follows:
Billericay Town (A) - Tue 9 July (7.45pm KO)
Weymouth (A) - Fri 12 July (7.45pm KO)
Dagenham & Redbridge (A) - Sat 20 July (7.45pm KO)
Millwall (H) - Wed 24 July (7.30pm KO)
The pitch was dug up on Wednesday in preparation for the 2019/20 League One season, of which you can find a picture gallery on the link.
We revealed Blues will have to travel further than last season when they take to the road next season. All the distances can be found here.
