Pre-season schedule update

DATE: 05.06.2018 - THE CUNNING FOX - BLOG

 

The pre-season is one looking forward to and follow up. We are all curious about opponents, where the team will play and how results will be in preperation for the start in August


So far two fixtures are confirmed. An away game at Meadow Lane v. Notts County on Saturday July 21, kick off 3 o'clock. The other one is a home game v. Valencia, on Wednesday August 1.

Notts County and Leicester City are like friends and never been regarded as local rivals, despite County being from Nottingham. Forest and Derby are the two rivals and in a way Notts County is one club we would like to regard as friends.

A number of people are previous and present staff and players at both clubs, with names such as Paul Mace, Alan Birchenall and Mark Draper coming to my mind, of course others also but in a way those three are well documented.

Paul Mace worked at Leicester for many years and there is no secret that they fellow is a long life Notts County supporter, being brought up as a fan and also working at the club with several projects as he has also done at Leicester City.

Alan Birchenall is one who also is a Notts County fan, with his father a long life Magpies supporter. Birch played for a short period at Meadow Lane after his days at Leicester City.

Mark Draper was the first player to ever be signed for 1 million or more by Leicester City when he arrived from Notts County in the summer of 1994. He only played one season at Leicester City, but for always in the record books with that transfer fee to his name.

To get
Valencia on a visit to King Power on August 1st, is of course a thrill and a great test. Valencia ended 4th in the Spanish top flight. The club with four previous English managers will be interesting to watch.

We all know Gary Neville had a short lived career at the club, but few might probably now that James Herriott, Radolfo Galloway and Jack Greenwell all had spells at the club in the first years of Valencia's excistence.

Claudio Ranieri is also a prevous manager at the club, being in charge at Valencia from 1997 to 1999. Former Arsenal players Gabriel and Francis Coquelin are currently playing at the club.
