Youth Coach Terry Pashley
We revealed the game at Ramsbottom a few weeks ago and this is now confirmed for Wednesday 27th July whilst we make the annual trip to Padiham on the following Monday 1st August.

To add to that there are away games against Wigan, Stoke and Leeds as a much younger youth team prepares for the 2005/06 in what will be a new look Youth Alliance League.

The league fixtures are not as yet available yet but the planned changes will see the scrapping of the Merit League which has in previous seasons taken over from February following the end of the initial Alliance league fixtures.

We’ll give you news of the new league and fixtures just as soon as we have them available. The youth players will though be playing in the Pontin’s Holiday League which is the reserve league and you can click HERE to see those fixtures for 2005/06 season.

The pre-season games, all of which are away, are as follows:
