Burnley's pre- season plans will be very similar to those in 2011 with news today that two more games, against Bury and Rochdale have been added to the programme that already included a game at Altrincham

Burnley will again play Bury in pre-season

The Altrincham game, as previously reported, is on Saturday 21st July which is four weeks before the opening league game. That's exactly the same as last year, and in a repeat we travel to Gigg Lane three days later to face Bury before heading off to the South West.

The team will be based in Bath, as last year, but as yet there are no confirmed games during the week away.

Last year we came back to play at Oldham but this year will travel to Spotland to play Rochdale, our first visit there since 1998 when Stan Ternent's team played a pre-season friendly which will be on Tuesday 7th August.

It is believed that again there will be a home fixture on the Saturday before the big kick off but again nothing is as yet confirmed.

All the games can be found listed on the Friendlies/Key Dates page.
