TOWN have scrapped plans to go to Ireland next pre-season.

Team chief Peter Jackson had pencilled in a training trip based around Dublin and including a couple of games.

But he said today: "We are going to keep it local.

"We can have some good workouts here without the extra expense, and it will give our fans more of a chance to come along."

Town's Reserve game against Tranmere at the McAlpine has been brought forward two days to Monday, April 19 (2pm).
