Accrington Stanley have announced today that they have arranged a friendly against Blackburn Rovers at The Store First Stadium in our pre season warm up to 2014-15.

Gary Bowyer’s side will come to us on Wednesday July 23rd for a 7.45pm kick off and the friendly is part of the deal which saw our former youngster Connor Mahoney move to Ewood Park earlier this season and it will obviously be his first return to the club since then as it’s expected he will play a part hopefully.

It’ll be a good test for the side ahead of the new season as Blackburn narrowly missed out in the Championship play offs, a gap of two points, which saw them finish in eighth place in the league and of course it’ll be a nice moment for manager James Beattie because he began his playing career as a youngster with them many years ago.

Ticket details and further pre season plans will be announced in due course.
