Clarets romp home against Latics

Burnley Youth team got their Alliance League season off to a flyer with a 3-0 win away to Oldham Athletic.

Goals from Kevin Ly, Ntumba Massanka and Alex Whitmore earned Terry Pashley's side a richly deserved win.

Aussie midfielder Ly opened the scoring in the 26th minute with a neat finish from a Christian Hill header and Massanka doubled the lead seven minutes before the break with a clever lob.

Whitmore swept home the third just after the hour mark to leave Pashley delighted at his players' efforts.

The coach said: "The boys were excellent from start to finish. It was a solid first half performance, backed up with an equally decent second half display and it's a great start for us."

Burnley: Jakovlevs, Azam, Richardson, Whitmore, Nugent, Jackson, Daly, Lowe (Bianga 79), Hill (Nuttall 72), Ly, Massanka (Metz 74)

Subs: Holt, Mitchell
