Bamber Bridge won 21, drew six and lost 15 of their 42 league matches last season to collect 69 points, which left them in sixth position in the Northern Premier League Premier Division, two points behind fifth-place Warrington Town, as they just missed out on the playoff spots.
Jamie Milligan‘s side have a busy pre-season schedule, starting with a clash against Preston on Saturday before taking on Wigan Athletic and Oldham Athletic in their next two.
Bamber Bridge will then travel to Charnock Richard and Longridge Town in their next two on July 12 and July 16 respectively, before facing Bolton Wanderers, Fulwood Amateurs and Ashton Athletic.
The team’s final pre-season clash will be against Clitheroe on August 2, and there are expected to be a lot of incomings and outgoings in their squad before the start of competitive action.
Bamber Bridge could have a number of trialists involved in this match, with a host of players bidding to win contracts for the upcoming campaign.
There are expected to be familiar names in their side, though, with the likes of Darren Green and Stuart Vasey set to take to the field for the home team.
Preston, meanwhile, have had a strong squad in pre-season training, although Alan Browne and Ali McCann have been given extra time off to recover, having been involved for their countries over the summer.
Head coach Lowe has said that his squad have come back “in good condition”, and there are expected to be a number of familiar faces on display in this match.
