FLEETWOOD Town boss Micky Mellon and chairman Andy Pilley travelled to France to watch the Ligue 1 match of the week between Marseille and Lyon, but their plans were blown off course.

The match was called off because of high winds – however, it was not a wasted exercise.

Mellon got an invite to see how Marseille prepared for a match in training.

The trip came about because of Joey Barton’s link with Fleetwood, where he trained for a time before signing for the French club on loan.
