Burnley Development Squad earned a memorable victory on Wednesday against a Liverpool side that included Reds’ striker Luis Suarez.

The classy Clarets were on song on Merseyside, earning victory through goals from Cameron Howeison and Steven Hewitt (pictured).

And the Reds, for whom Uruguayan striker Suarez completed 90 minutes as he continues to sit out his first team ban, had no answer as Burnley held out for a fabulous win.

The opener came from New Zealand international Howieson in the 17th minute as the midfielder curled a 25-yard free kick into the top corner.

And Hewitt doubled the advantage in the 26th minute, tapping home from close range from Luke O’Neill’s pinpoint cross.

Development Squad coach Simon Weatherstone said: “It was a great performance from the lads throughout the game.

“In possession we were very bright and effective and always had options available, which we used intelligently.

“Out of possession we were also very organised and disciplined against very good opposition, including the obvious threat posed by Suarez.

“We were delighted with the result and performance and I am sure the boys will have picked up so much from playing a quality team.”
