U18s Kick Off Against Champions

Charlton Athletic first up for youth team

6 August 2018

The Clarets' Under-18s start their second season in the Professional Development League against defending champions Charlton Athletic on Saturday.

The Addicks visit Barnfield for an 11am kick-off.

Danny Cadamarteri's side finished fifth in the northern group of the competition last season, while Charlton were second in the southern group before going on to beat Crystal Palace 2-1 in the play-off final.

Inevitably, both sides will have differing line-ups this weekend due to the changes in age group but Burnley will hope to hit the ground running with their new-look squad.

The Clarets completed their pre-season build-up last weekend in a mini-tournament at England's training HQ at St George's Park.

Cadamarteri's side lost to Brighton but then beat Derby 1-0 with a goal from Will Harris.

The Clarets will play their home games at the Barnfield Training Centre.
