Brabin spent three years at Bloomfield Road after joining from Bury in 1996 and is currently in his fourth managerial role after spells at Cambridge United, Luton Town and two spells at Southport.

The away game is sandwiched between Blackpool’s home game with Bowyer’s old club Blackburn Rovers on Saturday July 23 (3pm kick-off) and a home fixture against League One club Bury on Saturday July 30 (3pm kick-off).

Those three games are the only three pre-season fixtures the club has announced so far and admission prices will be revealed by the club in due course.
