Blackpool will host Barclays Premier League side Everton in a pre-season friendly at Bloomfield Road on Tuesday, August 4. The high-profile clash, scheduled for a 7.45pm kick-off, will be the Seasiders' final outing before their season opener at QPR on Saturday, August 8. New boss Ian Holloway is delighted that Toffees counterpart David Moyes agreed to bring his side to the Fylde Coast. Holloway said: "It's a big bonus getting Everton lined up and I am grateful to David Moyes for agreeing to come. "For me this completes what I think is already a good pre-season. "Pre-season games aren't about how we get on. It's about getting the lads in the right mindset for the challenge we've got ahead."
