See below, just underneath the 'rear view' crowd scene at Bangor City FC, to peruse (or pursue even) a provisional list of 'friendly' games that I am hoping to attend in the very near future.
As always, all plans are subject to change... you know how it is with pre-season fixtures us contrary bastard football bloggerists.
Further details and additional fixtures will be added/altered/updated in due course.
My bucket list for next season includes approximately thirty new grounds. 
That is to say, they're not all actually new, though one or two are, but they're new grounds to me, i.e. places that I haven't visited previously.
Please check before with the host club before setting out, because I won't be taking any responsibility whatsoever for any expense you might incur, should any of these games be cancelled/postponed/rearranged at short notice.
