Wanderers will welcome West Brom to the Toughsheet Community Stadium for their final pre-season warm-up game.

Ian Evatt’s side had been due to play ‘top-flight’ European opposition in their last scheduled friendly but saw the agreement break down at the last moment despite their best efforts.

Carlos Corberan’s Championship Baggies have provided a suitable replacement and will face Bolton on Saturday, July 29, with a 3pm kick-off.

West Brom finished ninth last season – their second successive campaign outside the Premier League - missing out on the play-offs by three points.

Their last visit to Bolton was in January 2019, a night game made memorable for the pre-match protest from home supporters against the failing reign of former owner, Ken Anderson.

The match itself was also interrupted by protests inside the stadium, which included banners and tennis balls being thrown on to the pitch.

The mood should be a lot brighter this time around, however, with Evatt’s side maintaining high hopes for automatic promotion after three consecutive seasons of progress.

The pre-season will kick off with Wanderers heading to the Sir Tom Finney Stadium to take on Bamber Bridge on Saturday, July 8 (3pm). That is quickly followed by a trip to Tameside Stadium to face Curzon Ashton on Tuesday, July 11 (7pm).

The Whites head to the Deva Stadium on Saturday, July 15 (3pm) to take on National League North outfit Chester Their final away pre-season fixture is against League Two side Salford City at the Peninsula Stadium on Saturday, July 22 (3pm).

Premier League Everton will be the first visitors to the newly named TSC on Tuesday, July 25 (kick-off 7.45pm) before West Brom bring pre-season to a close the following weekend.

The two home games will also give a first test to a new playing surface, which is now being completely replaced following the end of P!nk’s two-day concert at the start of her world tour.

Wanderers’ regular season will be mapped out next Thursday with the release of the EFL League One fixtures, with the first game almost certain to fall on Saturday, August 5.

Ticket information for all games will be released in the coming weeks.
