A new date for Rovers Under-18s' FA Youth Cup quarter-final clash with Blackpool Under-18s at Ewood Park has been confirmed.

The tie, which was originally due to take place on Wednesday 28th February, was postponed due to adverse weather conditions.

But following discussions, both clubs have agreed that the new date for the clash will be on Tuesday 6th March, kick-off 7pm at Ewood Park.

Billy Barr's youngsters are starting to make Ewood their home and have seen off Wrexham, Stoke, Watford and the latest victims being Nottingham Forest on home turf, after winning away at Tranmere in the first round.

Jack Vale will be hoping to continue his fine form in the competition, with the 16-year-old hitting a hat-trick against Forest last time out.

Opponents Blackpool defeated Ipswich Town 2-0 in the last round and have already beaten both Southampton and West Ham United in their FA Youth Cup journey this term.

Come down and support the lads in their cup adventure!
