See below, just underneath the 'rear view' crowd scene at Bangor City FC, to peruse (or pursue even) a provisional list of 'friendly' games that I am hoping/intending to attend in the very near future.
As always, all plans are subject to eleventh hour change... you know how it is with pre-season fixtures and us contrary bastard football blogheads.
Further details and additional fixtures will be added/altered/updated in due course.... several enforced amendments have been edited thus far already.
My bucket list for next season includes approximately thirty new grounds. 
That is to say, they're not all actually new (though one or two are), but they're new to me, inasmuch as they're places that I haven't visited to watch football before.
Only three of the venues listed below are previously uncharted by yours truly... and they are Campion, Hall Green United and Skegness Town.
Please check before with the host club before setting out to any of these games, because I won't be taking any responsibility whatsoever for any expenses you might incur, should any of these games be cancelled/postponed/rearranged at short notice.
