Accrington Stanley will host non-league neighbours Chorley in a pre-season friendly on Friday 1st August.

The recently promoted Magpies will take on the Reds at the Store First Stadium with kick off 7:30pm.

This is a third home pre-season game for James Beattie’s men following on from games with Blackburn and Burnley.

Chorley are managed by another former Blackburn star, Garry Flitcroft, and won a place in the Conference North by winning last season’s Evo Stik Premier Division title.

Admission prices will be announced in due course.
