Father and son go head-to-head on Saturday when Clitheroe take on Stockport County in a pre-season friendly.

Blues boss Simon Garner will face dad, Carl, at Shawbridge after Hatters boss Neil Young offered him the role of head of recruitment at Edgeley Park in May.

The fixture will also see Danny Morton return to the Ribble Valley after the full back made the switch to the National League North outfit earlier in the summer. The game will kick-off at 3 p.m.

Clitheroe will also tackle Curzon Ashton on home soil on Tuesday, with the friendly commencing at 7-45 p.m., before the Blues host Ramsbottom United on July 18th, kick-off 3 p.m.

The club will then culminate their pre-season preparations with visits to the Silentnight Stadium where they’ll play Barnoldswick Town on Tuesday, July 28th, with kick-off scheduled for 7-30 p.m., Shelley FC (August 1st) and AFC Darwen (August 5th).

Admission prices for all three games are: £5 for adults, £3 concessions (including U18’s), £2 Under 14’s or free if accompanied by a full paying adult.
