Reserves Football is Coming Home to Turf Moor
Many Clarets fans will be relieved to hear that at long last our home Reserves fixtures will be returning to Turf Moor on a permanent basis.
There has been considerable problems using the Crown Ground at Accrington Stanley and their pitch is still not totally fit to play on despite their pitch improvement programme. Numerous games last season had to be postponed due to the inclement weather making the pitch unplayable.
Already this season pitch problems have affected our 'home' fixture against Oldham Athletic which has now been switched with the 'away' date and will now be played as an 'away' fixture at Stalybridge tomorrow.
The good news too is that our own pitch improvements have now been completed allowing the Reserves announcement to be made.
The club have also announced that this season the second-string will not be entering any cup competitions.
