AFC Bournemouth’s pre-season plans have begun to take shape with three friendlies announced against Portsmouth, Reading and Cardiff City.
The match against Portsmouth will be played at Fratton Park on Saturday 23rd July.
The game will be a benefit game for former Republic of Ireland midfielder Alan McLoughlin, with The News reporting that ‘the visitors have shown their class by donating their half of the gate receipts to McLoughlin`s benefit fund.
McLoughlin posted on Twitter…
Thank you @officialpompey & @afcbournemouth I am really looking forward to Saturday, 23rd July, 3pm KO, to show my appreciation to everyone.
To clarify, the game is ‘A full first team fixture’ It’s a competitive pre season game for both @officialpompey & @afcbournemouth
Tickets will be available on the gate, priced at £10 for adults, £5 for seniors (62+), young persons (18-22) and just £2 for juniors (Under 17’s).
