Rovers' development squad kick off their pre-season programme this evening when they face AFC Darwen at the WEC Anchor Ground.
After a fortnight being put through their paces at Brockhall, Damien Johnson's young guns see match action for the first time with a friendly against their near neighbours.
The Under-23s were amongst the goals when the two sides met last summer with Rovers running out comfortable 5-0 winners.
Joe Rankin-Costello fired a hat-trick, whilst Jack Doyle and Lewis Mansell were also on the scoresheet.
Kick-off this evening is at 7.00pm. Admission prices are £5 for Adults, £3 Concessions. Children are free up to the age of 16.
