Who, or more like WHERE do we want?

I was gutted we were not allowed to travel to Harrogate in the cup, but how about Harrogate away?
Great piss up town that is. New micro boozer on Cold Bath Lane is excellent with all the guest ales and lagers, plus a big beer garden.
Pubs galore for all the lads and lasses.

Maybe York City next day? Another great city for away fans and another cracking night out.

Or how about Newcastle away?
Anyone want reminding of the 2010 trip there? 😇😆

Southport away, as it is nice in the summer there, mind you the Harrogate away is nice as well.

Harrogate and Barrow would be. two new grounds. Had a great day in the pubs in Southport a few years back too.

I'm sure there may be a game against Liverpool again. Everton too. Eastbourne would be a nice touch. Then probably some lower league rubbish like Notlob or Codwood.

Harrogate and the new York City ground are a fair bit away from the town centre.....Quite fancy Leeds or Villa or possibly Bolton, Tranmere, Rochdale seeing we won't be playing them competitively anytime soon.....

I really hope so...they will fill the ground and the town.....covid restrictions permitting of course.

Or Lancaster,Southport,Eastbourne,York,Harrogate and last but not least Barrow as these seem to be the lower league rubbish that fans would approve of. 😀

The Lancs Manx Cup, as a recall. A team from the IOM plus 3 or 4 teams from Lancashire
No the Isle of Man tourist board used to sponsor the Lancashire cup in the 80s the lancs cup was a pre season comp between us, bolton , Preston, Burnley , Wigan and Blackburn, and bury/Rochdale. The winners during the period of sponsorship were invited to take part in the Isle of Man football festival 👍🏻 Off the top of my head other teams that were there when we were , Aberdeen , Wrexham, Oxford and Motherwell .
