European tour starts in July

With Bolton qualifying for the UEFA Cup, it seems our 3-3 draw with Reading now means we are the highest placed applicant for the Intertoto Cup (current holders Newcastle United). Our season will start in the 21/22 of July, with the second leg a week after.

We will be visiting a former communist stronghold now heavily subsidised by EU money.

That is: Llanelli from South Wales V Lithuanian side Vetra Vilnius in June. The winners of that will then play a team from Poland (mid-table to top is wide open). We won't know where we'll be until the 14th of July. But either way it's a trip we're quite up for going on.

This was gleaned from the BBC Wales football site and from the UEFA website, Intertoto section.

Disappointed that West Ham survived. The Tevez thing stinks. Then there's Lucas Neill.
