GREAT Harwood face a Blackburn Rovers XI next Wednesday (28 July) at the Showground. The friendly was arranged as part of the deal which took striker Matty Derbyshire to Ewood Park.
"I remember playing for Rovers at Harwood when I was around 17 and Ken Furphy had just been made manager," said boss Dave Bradford.
"I played okay and got picked for the first game. So it is a big game for the Rovers players - even if they are basically the youngsters - and my players as well."
Kick off is 7.30pm and the cost is £5 and £2.
