Pre-Season Tour Unlikely

It looks like Morton won't be going on a pre-season tour this year. I'd heard a pretty strong rumour that we wouldn't be going anywhere earlier in the week. This coincided with the Ayr United and St. Mirren friendlies being announced with no mention of a tour that was expected to be revealed sometime during the week.

All the evidence seemed to point to a pre-season at home and it would appear that this is indeed the case. After talking to Davie Irons at the fans' game today Sean Donnelly (Se65an)of the Gourock Morton Supporters posted on the unofficial messageboard to say that a tour was unlikely and that, so far, we would only be playing the following matches:

Ayr United (h) - Saturday 12th July
St. Mirren (h) - Tuesday 29th July
Dumbarton (a) - TBC
Hartlepool (h) - TBC

This will be the first time in six years that we haven't been on a tour of some sort.

July 2002 - Campbeltown, Fort William, Inverness Caldeonian Thistle
July 2003 - Buckie Thistle, Keith, Deveronvale
July 2004 - Buckie Thistle, Lossiemouth, Clachnacuddin
July 2005 - Northwich Victoria, Altrincham, Witton Albion
July 2006 - Morecambe, Barrow
