Rovers' Under-18s kicked off their pre-season programme in disappointing fashion with a 5-1 loss to Preston North End.

Against an older Preston side playing their third match of the summer, Rovers found themselves 2-0 down inside the opening half hour.

Callum Wright pulled a goal back for Rovers, but by half-time the Lilywhites had restored their two-goal lead.

The home side stretched their advantage further in the second half, grabbing two further goals.
