It is the best part of a month since a gripping, enthralling Vanarama National League North campaign came to a nailbiting, ultimately heartbreaking end in a play-off semi-final that seesawed one way then the other against Chorley at Victory Park.
Little wonder, then, that so many Altrincham fans are eager to know how long they will have to wait for the next opportunity to see Phil Parkinson's mighty Robins in action again, as thoughts turn to another tilt at promotion next season.
The wait will have to go on a little longer, naturally enough, but the good news is the countdown can begin, as we are now able to present a full list of pre-season friendlies, handpicked by Phil to sharpen up his squad for the campaign ahead.
There could well be an additional game on July 6th, and possibly one more on June 29th. These are not yet finalised, but we will inform everyone one way or the other, as soon as we know.
