Academy Loan Round-up

Youngsters making most of first team experience.

6 November 2018

A latest round-up on the young Clarets out on loan gaining first team experience.

U23 defender Scott Wilson joined Evo-Stik Premier Division side Stalybridge Celtic in the summer and has been an ever-present for Simon Howarth’s side.

Wilson has started Celtic’s last four matches and now has 18 appearance to his name for the club and the 18-year old notched his first goal in a 3-2 defeat against Scarborough.

Michael Fowler recently made the switch to Radcliffe Borough, following his impressive loan spell at Padiham.

And the in-form striker bagged a hat-trick on his debut in a 3-2 victory over Prescot Cables, with his third being the match-winning goal.

 The win shifted Radcliffe into the play-off positions in the Evo-Stik West Division table.

Towering centre-back Richard Taylor joined Colne at the start of October and has recently extended his loan for an extra month.

Taylor made his debut on the 6th October against Radcliffe Borough, where the Nigerian headed home the opening goal of the match just 20 minutes in.

And the defender has gone onto to feature in the Reds’ last eight matches.

Ethan Kershaw enjoyed a two-month work experience loan at Barnoldswick, before returning back to Burnley this week to join up with the youth team.

Meanwhile, striker Will Harris has extended his time at Nelson for a further month, with the forward being able to be recalled by the Clarets at any point.

Finally, Dylan Meredith has joined up with Morecambe U18s on a work experience move, where the winger will play in the Youth Alliance League and also feature for the reserve side.
