Terry Butcher will miss the first week or so as he fulfills his duties with the BBC in Portugal. It's unlikely that any of the players he is watching at the moment will appear in claret and amber but we hope that his phone has been busy as the search for new faces continues.
The first public game on the schedule is on July 17 when we visit Stirling Albion. Fans will get a look at the new, improved playing surface on Sunday July 25 when the club holds the annual Open Day. The new home strip is scheduled to be on sale and all the usual tours, photo opportunities, competitions and stalls will be rolled out.
