Burnley U18s 2 Morecambe U18s 1

10 November 2012

Young Clarets make it five straight league wins.

The Clarets made it five straight league wins in the Youth Alliance thanks to a second half winner from Evan Galvin.

Lewis Nuttall headed Burnley front when he rose to nod in a cross from Christian Hill after just four minutes.

But the Shrimps were level six minutes later when they converted a free-kick from the edge of the penalty area.

The Clarets had rested their second-year scholars and young professionals ahead of a mid-week cup tie with Walsall but still had enough to bank the points when Nuttall crossed low for Galvin to steer home with just over half an hour to go.

Burnley: Jakovlevs, Dummigan, Hill, Holt, Whitmore, Daly (Frost 60), Ly, Jackson, Lowe, Galvin, Nuttall (Massanka 70). Subs: Bianga, Azzam, Mitchell.
