U18s Preview: Cardiff City

Young Clarets host Bluebirds at Barnfield

23 August 2019

Tony Philliskirk's side will look to kick start their season this weekend against Cardiff City in the U18 Professional Development League.

Both sides come into this game both looking for their first win of the season, with the Clarets losing their opening two matches and City drawing both of their fixtures.

Burnley have come up against the Bluebirds twice before at this level, with a 2-1 win in the 2017/18 season and a 5-1 defeat last season.

The Clarets will be without a handful of second-year scholars, as winger Rhys Fenlon has joined Padiham, with Harry Allen, Jayden Major and Udoka Chima joining Steeton on loan.

This will also open the door to first-year scholars to get more game time and develop, with U23 football on the horizon of the scholarships.

The match kicks off at 1:00pm at the Barnfield Training Centre.
