Bolton Wanderers have announced their preseason friendly schedule this morning (or afternoon, depending on where you are). The list of fixtures that fans have to look forward to this summer as Bolton gear up for the fight to get right back up isn't exactly appetizing. Still, it will be exciting to get a good look at the Whites before the long, grueling season that lies ahead.

The schedule lists a total of ten matches from mid-July to mid-August with anywhere from three to only one day between matches.
There are no United States tour dates announced but a stateside trip still remains a possibility from mid-June all the way up to the middle of July.
We will do our best to cover and provide updates on every match. We just hope that there isn't a repeat of Chungy last year with all of these low league sides.
