Vilamoura Tour Diary: Day Seven

13 July 2019

Fleetwood Town’s final full day in Portugal saw the chairman come to the training camp to watch the players train, and also a pre-season friendly against Millwall in Albufeira.

The day started off with a light breakfast before heading out onto the grass for the final training session whilst at Browns Sports Resort. The players ran through scenarios for the upcoming pre-season games as chairman Andy Pilley watched on.

Everyone then relaxed for an hour before heading into lunch – and a pre-match meal. Once everyone was finished, they boarded the coach and headed over to Albufeira for their pre-season friendly against Sky Bet Championship side Millwall.

Fleetwood played well throughout – with the cod army turning up in their masses – as a mix of new and young players narrowly lost to a vastly more experienced Millwall, due to a late Shaun Williams goal.

Head coach Joey Barton spoke to the media after the game, and you can watch his interview here.

The staff and players then headed back to the training camp for a late meal and rest before tomorrow’s flight back to England.
