Burnley’s friendly with Accrington Stanley called off

THE Clarets’ scheduled pre-season friendly at Accrington Stanley has been postponed.

The game was due to be played on Wednesday, 18 July as a testimonial for former long-serving Stanley assistant manager Jimmy Bell.

But the recent bad weather means pitch remedial work at the Crown Ground is behind schedule and the playing surface will not be ready in time.
