BLACKBURN Rovers star Colin Hendry will be swapping trades to try his hand at bricklaying on Monday.

The Scottish player will be laying the foundation stone for 43 new rooms at the Dunkenhalgh Hotel, Clayton-le-Moors, at 7.15pm.

He was asked to perform the duty as the Dunkenhalgh is part of the Scottish Macdonald Hotel group.

Staff have also organised for a bagpipe player to provide music.
