Meet the Blues Day is back this year!
We are pleased to confirm further details about the family fun day that will take place this coming Sunday, 15th August at Boots and Laces Training Ground.
Having had to watch on from afar for the past year, this will be a great chance to get up close once again to watch the first team squad as Phil Brown fine-tunes the team’s preparations less than a week before the new season kicks off away at King’s Lynn Town.
There will be lots of fun, games and activities planned, as well as the chance to meet Club staff, players, management and Sammy The Shrimp!
After putting his players through a training session in the morning, Phil Brown and the backroom team will also take part in a Q&A session in the afternoon, while players will be happy to sign autographs and pose for pictures at the signing sessions in the afternoon also.
