Youths Bury The Shakers

14 March 2017

The young Clarets bounced back from their last-gasp heartbreak to Wigan Athletic last weekend with a resounding 3-0 victory at Bury.

Three first half goals ensured Michael Duff's side collected all three points in the game, at the Carrington training centre.

Clarets striker Tommy Wood, pictured above, opened the scoring just four minutes in, before Tinashe Chakwana doubled the lead shortly afterwards.

And in a blistering start, Wood concluded the scoring from the penalty spot with his second and Burnley’s third after only 20 minutes.

It was the home side who started on the front foot, as Faustin Makela cut inside from the right before curling an effort just over Connor King's goal.

However, the visitors’ struck first when Tristan Jumeau worked well down the wing before finding Wood, who slammed home from just inside the area.

The Clarets were dominating the early stages and when Oliver Younger picked up the ball in defence, he looped a nice ball over the Shakers' defence, which Chakwana latched onto and slotted in past Cameron McCulloch to double the lead.

Minutes later Burnley were awarded a penalty after Will Osgathorpe brought down Wood in the box, and the confident forward stepped up and slammed home his second of the match.

With the game effectively wrapped up at half time, the Clarets’ came out in search of extending their lead, and when Harry Limb took advantage of Osgathorpe's mistake it looked that way only for McCulloch to deny the striker.

And despite Bury's best efforts to pull one back it was the away side who came closest to scoring as Tyler Shrimpton powered a shot from 25 yards just over the crossbar.
