Under-23s fixture amendments

Kick-off change for Burnley game and new date for Lancashire Cup quarter-final versus Everton

18 October 2019

Rovers wish to update supporters of changes to two upcoming Under-23s fixtures.

A new date for the Lancashire FA Senior Cup quarter-final against Everton, which was previously postponed due to international call-ups, has now been confirmed.

The tie will be played at Rovers Academy, Brockhall Village, on Tuesday October 29th, kick-off 1pm.

In the event of the scores being level at the end of 90 minutes, the winners will be determined by penalties.

This fixture will be free entry for all supporters.

Rovers, who lifted the trophy last season for the first time since 2011, booked their place in the last eight thanks to a 2-0 victory over Accrington Stanley in the first round, whilst Everton won 4-3 away to Blackpool.

Quarter-final draw in full:

Rovers v Everton
Burnley v AFC Fylde
Preston North End v Barrow
Morecambe v Bolton Wanderers or Wigan Athletic

Meanwhile, the Premier League Cup group game against Burnley, which is scheduled to take place at Ewood Park on Friday November 29th, will now kick-off at the earlier time of 1pm – and not 7pm as originally advertised.

Ticket and admission information will be announced in due course.

Billy Barr's side kicked off their Premier League Cup campaign with a 3-1 victory away to Crystal Palace yesterday thanks to goals from Harry Chapman and Joe Rankin-Costello (2).
