LEIGH Sports Village will once again play host to Blackburn Rovers for their home fixtures in the Barclays Under 21s Premier League this season.

The action kicks off against Aston Villa on Monday, August 25 at 7pm, and as a special offer, fans can watch tomorrow’s stars for free by signing up at leighsportsvillage.co.uk/rovers or e-mailing rovers@leighsportsvillage.co.uk with the amount of people they would like to bring.

Rovers will also play Arsenal, Stoke, Newcastle and Bolton over the course of the season at LSV.

“We’ve built up a really good relationship with Blackburn’s staff and fans over a number of seasons, so it’s great that we can welcome them back for another season of under 21s football,” said LSV chief executive Simon Toon.

“Top stars who have become firm fixtures in the Premier League, Serie A and the Bundesliga have all began their careers playing here, so we’re really happy to be able to give that taste of the footballing future to the people of Leigh.”

Blackburn Rovers under 21s manager Eric Kinder added: “I‘ve spent 12 months working with the staff at Leigh Sports Village and they are fantastic people.

"Everything that we want we get, they try and help us all we can. The playing surface, the ground staff are excellent – they did a wonderful job last season.

"I’m looking forward to going back again. Hopefully we can get a victory there because we didn’t manage that last season!”
