Rovers' Under-23s end their pre-season preparations this evening when they take on Trafford at Shawe View - kick-off 7.45pm.

A busy summer of matches has seen Damien Johnson's development squad win two and draw one of the six games played over the past four weeks, and they finish their pre-season programme against the Evo-Stik NPL First Division North side tonight.

The young Rovers go into the match in good heart off the back of a 5-0 win over Darwen on Tuesday evening. A hat-trick from Joe Rankin-Costello and goals from Jack Doyle and Lewis Mansell gave the Blue and Whites a comfortable victory.

The Under-23s kick off their Premier League 2 season in just over a week's time against Fulham at Craven Cottage on Monday 15th August.
