Move Earns Clarets' Youngster Youth Cup Date

Marcel Wusiewicz makes Salford switch as loan men keep busy

17 October 2017

Youth squad goalkeeper Marcel Wusiewicz has joined Salford City on work experience and is set to figure in their FA Youth Cup tie at York City tonight.

The 17-year-old (below) has recently spent time at Padiham but has now joined the Ammies in time for their third qualifying round tie at Bootham Crescent.

Wusiewicz -  a second-year scholar at Turf Moor - is one of almost a dozen Clarets out on loan to gain first-team and matchday experience.

Many will be in action again on Tuesday night with a full programme for Leagues One and Two.

Tom Anderson is back in the county with the defender's Port Vale side at Morecambe looking to back-up Saturday's win over Cheltenham Town.

Anderson started his sixth game of a loan stay with the Valiants as they beat Cheltenham 3-1 to record a first League Two win since the opening day of the season and their first under recently-appointed boss Neil Aspin.

Also in League Two, Josh Ginnelly is likely to be in the Lincoln City squad going to Swindon Town after the winger made his ninth appearance of the season as the Imps drew 0-0 with Cambridge United last weekend.

Midfielder Aiden O'Neill - a regular for Fleetwood Town - will face former Fleetwood boss and ex-Turf Moor favourite Graham Alexander as the Cod Army go to Scunthorpe in League One.

Luke Hendrie will hope to get the chance to help third-placed Bradford City bounce back against improving Oldham Athletic after the full-back made his first league start for the Bantams in their 3-1 defeat at Bury last Saturday.

Dan Agyei has scored three times in his last five appearances for Walsall

Dan Agyei's Walsall are at Milton Keynes Dons with the Clarets’ striker looking for a fifth goal in 10 games.

And also in League One, striker Chris Long is hoping to return for struggling Northampton Town at Rochdale after a spell out with a hamstring injury.

None of the young Clarets on loan at National League sides figured in Monday night’s draw for the first-round proper of the FA Cup.

Jimmy Dunne was sent off for the second time this season as Barrow were knocked out in the fourth qualifying round by Evo Stik Premier side Shaw Lane at the weekend.

Ntumba Massanka’s Wrexham suffered a similar fate at the hands of AFC Fylde, while Conor Mitchell did not figure in Chester’s defeat to Kidderminster following a minor injury picked up on international duty with Northern Ireland’s under-21s.

Meanwhile, the Academy’s under-15 side is in action on Wednesday night in the Premier League Floodlit Cup.

The Clarets are at home to Everton in their opening group game.

The game takes place at Padiham FC, kick-off 7pm with no admission charge.

Burnley will also face Liverpool and Blackburn Rovers in their group, playing each side home and away.
