Accrington Stanley have announced two pre-season friendlies against non-league opposition.

The Reds will face Barrow who finished 11th in the Vanarama National League last season and the Bluebirds, managed by former Mansfield boss Paul Cox, will provide strong opposition for John Coleman’s men.

Stanley will travel to the Furness Building Society Stadium on Tuesday July 26th (ko 7-45pm).

They will also travel to Skelmersdale on Tuesday July 19th (ko 7-45pm).

Skelmersdale finished 16th in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League last season – Stanley striker Max Hazeldine spent time on loan there in the last campaign.
