Shakers To Host Blackburn Rovers In Pre-Season Friendly

10 May 2019

We are delighted to announce that we will host Championship outfit Blackburn Rovers in a pre-season friendly!

The game will take place at the Energy Check Stadium at Gigg Lane on Wednesday 24th July. Kick-Off will be 7:45pm.

Tony Mowbray guided his side to safety in their first season back in the Championship, with Rovers finishing comfortably outside the relegation zone.

The two sides met three times in the 2017/18 season, with Rovers claiming the six points in the league. The Shakers were victorious at Ewood Park in a Checkatrade Trophy tie.

It was the first time the sides had met in a competitive fixture since 1980.

We will announce the ticket details and seating arrangements in due course.
