|SAINTS are trying to arrange pre-season friendlies with both Chelsea and Everton in the run-up to the new campaign.
Chelsea's visit to Llansantffraid last year (pictured) drew a ground record crowd of 1996, so the visit of either or both of the Premiership 'Blues' would be certain to capture the imagination of the mid-Wales public.
Pre-season games definitely on the schedule for TNS are:-
Saturday 12 July - MALPAS F C (home) kick-off 3.00 pm
Tuesday 15 July - TEAM BATH (home) kick-off 7.30 pm
Saturday 19 July - DERRY CITY (away) kick-off 7.30 pm
Tuesday 22 July - VAUXHALL MOTORS (away) kick-off 7.30 pm
Saturday 26 July - SHREWSBURY TOWN (home) kick-off 3.00 pm
Saturday 2 August - PORTADOWN (away) kick-off 3.00 pm
