It’s derby day for Dale’s under 18s this Saturday as they face Bury at Moore Lane.
The match, which has an 11am kick-off, is the third consecutive home game for the youth team following fixtures against Tranmere Rovers and Wrexham.
The youngsters head into this weekend’s encounter with one win, one defeat and a draw from their opening three league fixtures. Last Saturday they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Wrexham. Wrexham took an early lead at Moore Lane after netting on four minutes, but Callum Camps was on target for Dale on the half hour mark to ensure a share of the spoils.
