New Paderborn Venue Confirmed
Wednesday, 26th Jun 2019 12:30
Town’s opening pre-season friendly against German Bundesliga new boys Paderborn on Saturday 6th July will now be played at the Stadion Laumeskamp in Delbrück, the club has confirmed.
The game was originally to be staged at Biekra Sportpark in Bielefeld before it was moved to the Cronsbachstadion in Steinhagen but that venue fell through due to police concerns regarding security with there being no way of segregating fans. The match remains a 3pm kick-off, local time.
The following weekend the Blues take part in the four-team Interweppen Cup in Meppen.

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
