ROTHERHAM United are having a trip to Portugal as part of their pre-season build-up.
Manager Andy Scott will take the squad next week after the midweek date with Sheffield Wednesday.
They will have a have a few days out there and, with eight new signings in his squad, Scott will see this as a perfect opportunity to integrate them over and above the normal day-to-day pre-season training routine.
It is likely Scott will try to fit in a game out there too.
The Millers will return ready for their friendly against Alan Knill’s Scunthorpe United on Wednesday, July 27, at Don Valley (7.45pm).
Rotherham have their first game of the build-up on Saturday at Grimsby Town.
Of more concern is the second one next Tuesday against Sheffield Wednesday, with the club urging fans to get their tickets by Monday. Sales have been slow. It is all-ticket with none on sale on the day.
