Rovers Reserves kick off their Barclays under 21 Premier League campaign this afternoon when they take on Norwich City.

Gary Bowyer has named a young side for the opening match of the season with the majority of the squad taken from last season's hugely successful Academy team.

Rovers have just Micah Evans with any league experience amongst their ranks, the wide man having played for Accrington Stanley on loan last season.

In a change to the advertised venue and kick-off time, the game now takes place at Norwich's training ground, with a 2.00pm kick-off.

Rovers: Urwin, Wylie, Beesley, Lenihan, O'Connell (c), Mason, Evans, R. Hanley, Maclaren, O'Sullivan, Osawe. Subs: Fernandez, Dilo, Brown, Haley, Thompson.
