11 day gap in pre-season?

So from the 5th to 16th July we currently have no fixtures pencilled in according to the official website.

 

Does anyone "in the know" have any idea if we can expect a mini tour to be announced in the coming week or will this gap be filled with a few more local matches?

 

Ireland seemed to work out pretty well for us last term, and we've got a bit more cash in our pockets this time around... A mini trip to somewhere on the easyjet/Ryanair network early July would be bang tidy.

 

Me and Dan Phillips are keen to book something up as soon as possible if there are any plans.

That is where our proposed Oversea's trip was going to be.....But the plug was pulled on it........Little trip to N.Ireland would do....Cheap Ryanair and Easyjet on the cards eh.

Northern Ireland would be ideal. I've always wanted to visit Londonderry, and if we were based around Belfast I know a few good pubs/bars down Sandy Row and Shankill Road we could have a few beers in Jimmy.

Letterkenny?

 

"Letterkenny is one of the worst towns in Ireland for public order offences. There were a total of 777 public order offences recorded in the town in 2003 with 1505 recorded in 2008. These statistics place Letterkenny as the sixth worst town in Ireland for public order offences, worse than the notoriously dangerous Dublin suburbs of Coolock and Clondalkin.

 

Recent years have seen serious crimes in Letterkenny being linked with feuds between gangs within certain areas of the town, mainly the Mountain Top and Oldtown and the surrounding areas. In one such incident a man was seriously injured when attacked with pitchforks and slash hooks in the Mountain Top area of the town. The Oldtown area has seen several feuds in recent years - dubbed the "Battle of the Oldtown" by the media. In one incident a man was stabbed and another taken to hospital. The gangs used ninja-type weapons of chains and swords. They only calmed upon the intervention of a local priest. Daggers, knives, chains and rapier-type swords were later confiscated by gardaí.

 

The Main Street has seen numerous assaults, stabbings, sexual assaults, drug raids and attacks on Gardaí in the past. Drug crime has become a problem in recent years, notably in the now demolished mart building."

 

Sounds like a lovely town.

According to the Non League Paper (9 June 2013) Vale have additional pre-season friendlies at Newcastle Town Sunday 7 July at 2.30 pm and Alsager Town Tuesday 9 July at 7.45pm. These have obviously been submitted by Newcastle and Alsager but is there any confirmation from the Vale.
