Blackpool manager Gary Bowyer is looking forward to renewing acquaintances with Gareth Ainsworth and Wycombe Wanderers on the opening day of the 2018/19 season.
Fixtures for the new campaign were officially announced earlier today, with Pool travelling to the newly-promoted Chairboys on 4 August, before hosting Portsmouth a week later.
“It’s a good fixture to open the season with. Gareth has done a terrific job in his time at Wycombe and, like us last season, they are starting out on the back of a promotion,” Bowyer said. “It’s one we’ll certainly be looking forward to, as well as our first home game against Portsmouth a week later. I’m sure they’ll bring a big following.
“We’re not that far away from getting underway again now. The players report back for pre-season training next week and we’ve added six new additions so far. The lads we’ve brought in are all excited, determined and driven to succeed. We’ve still got work to do though and continue to work hard on the recruitment front,” he added.
