Ozz Posted July 18, 2010 Share Posted July 18, 2010 After playing Fleetwood and Southport simultaneously on Saturday Rovers third pre season game in four days see us re-group at the slightly less seasidey destination of Deepdale. Rovers beat Southwood 22, or was it Fleetport XXII, it's difficult to be sure, 5-0 on aggregate, so an impressive start for us despite our preparation being the same as the England World Cup squad on top of a mountain in Austria. Dunn in the new, slimming red away top. Preston's preparation involved beating up local minnows Bamber Bridge, and latterly newly Rovers influenced Chorley on Friday night, 3-1. Curiously for Preston it must be the first time ever that when contesting this Jack Kirkland trophy that Chorley had the more famous manager. I say curiously when really I mean embarrassingly. Our last meaningful game at Deepdale as we all know was when now Chorley coach nodded us back into the Premier League on a wonderful evening in Preston, memories of which and other games there available here.Since then we have been back there a couple of times, winning 1-0 with Paul Dickov scoring at the Town End, and latterly another pre season friendly when Santa Cruz made his debut about three years ago in our brilliant red and black halved away tops. MGP demonstrating his accuracy from a dead ball situation. To be honest I cannot remember the result that day as I had been in Deepdale working mens club since about 11.30am and lost track of events about the time the match kicked off, so apologies there, if anyone can offer more details please feel free. I do recall there was an even more refreshed bloke sat near me, but it turned out he was so relaxed he had sat in the wrong stand, as he was a Nob Ender and was promptly ejected by the worlds friendliest stewards. Anyway I'm looking forward to Tuesday, not for the football of course that'll be rubbish. I'm just glad to get out of the house for a bit really these days...if you see me give us a wave!
