The new Youth Alliance season begins for Stanley’s Under 18’s side tomorrow with the opening game against their Preston North End counterparts.

With a new intake of first year scholars, many of whom were part of the side that enjoyed a run in the Youth Cup last season, hopes are high of a good campaign for Keith Brown’s side.

A number of the squad have been involved with the first team throughout pre-season and will be keen to hit  the ground running with competitive action.

The opening game takes place at the Arbories, home of Padiham FC, and with the first team in action tonight we’d love to see a good crowd supporting the stars of the future.

Kick off is 10:30 and admission prices are £3 Adults and £2 for all concessions
