Stoke Home Friendly Changed to Galpharm Stadium

The Turf Moor pitch is currently under going a major 750,000 state-of-the-art refurbishment but the scale of the work required has cast doubts that it will now be ready in time for our only home game pre-season friendly scheduled for Saturday 31st July against Premier League club, Stoke City.

The club have therefore taken the precaution to move the fixture to another stadium. Huddersfield Town have kindly offered to help so the match will now be played at the Galpharm Stadium on the same date (Kick-Off 3pm)

This is actually brilliant news for your editor who has just secured a work contract in Huddersfield and now knows both the town and stadium well. My first excuse to go to a game at the Galpharm has come quicker than I thought after willing the League 1 club to be promoted to the Championship but seeing them fail in the play-offs.

This will also be a new stadium to go to for me! Wonder if Joey Gudjonsson will be watching from the sidelines after signing for the Terriers earlier in the summer?

If anybody wants any tips come the game just ask!

Pitch better be ready for the season kick-off against Forest at home or there really will be egg on face! In the meantime I had to chuckle!

I'll probably come to this game now, lot closer for me. I think they want to give the pitch another week to bed, in which is probably for the best. We have all seen what happens at Wembley when they don't let the pitch bed in!!

How fortunate is that tmp :-) does this now make it an away match or will we still be classed as the home team? I am confused.com

Some are saying this should simply have cancelled the match. No thanks!!
