Everton’s pre-season campaign kicks off at the weekend with the Blues taking a strong squad down to Wiltshire to take on Swindon Town of League One.
Roberto Martinez is keen for the majority of his squad to get some action following a good weeks training at Finch Farm.
“The Swindon game will be a perfect introduction playing-wise as we will be able to get 45 minutes’ playing time for most of the players in our squad ahead of us travelling to Singapore,” Martinez told evertonfc.com.
“Logistically, the game fits in well in terms of our preparation overall.
“We have enjoy some good groundwork during the first few days in training and the game at Swindon and the week we then have in Singapore will follow what has been a build-up week full of volume at Finch Farm.”
Tickets for the game are no longer on sale at Goodison Park, however Swindon will be operating paid turnstiles on the day of the game, with many Blues expected to make the journey down to the South West to see the Toffees in action. If you can’t make it down to the game then the action will be relayed via a subscription service on Everton TV.
