Their first match was played, again behind closed doors, last weekend when Tranmere Rovers visited Poolfoot Farm.

That saw both sides play out a 2-2 draw with Toto Nsiala and Paddy Lane scoring for the Cod Army.

Once Town return from their Croatian training camp, they have another private friendly against Championship opposition when they travel to Stoke City on Saturday, July 16.

Next up after that is a match at Barrow AFC on Tuesday, July 19 before their preparations end on home soil as Dundee United visit Highbury on Saturday, July 23.

Town’s Poolfoot Farm training base also staged a CPD event last week for coaches working in the women’s game, on behalf of the FA and the England Lionesses talent ID programme.

The session was hosted by local junior coaches, as well as FA and England Lionesses Under-15s coaches Amanda Goodwin and Jemma Entwistle, who delivered a football training session to all the girls who turned up.

With the first hour dedicated to a CPD for the attending coaches, the second hour was spent observing a session delivered by the two England FA A Licence coaches.
