Lancashire rugby rivalries will be renewed in September as Preston Grasshoppers face Fylde.

The derby has not taken place since 2011 due to the two sides being in different leagues, but relegation for Fylde and promotion for Preston means they will do battle once more.

Lightfoot Lane will see the same on Saturday 8 September and a big crowd is expected.

Tickets for the match are £10 on the gate, with concessions £6 and under-16s free.

Hoppers are also trying to tempt football fans in with Preston North End season ticket holders getting a £5 ticket, just need to show their season ticket on the gate.

Kick-off is at 2.30pm.
