Glennon: It Was A Quality Win

Skipper delighted with five-star Clarets

9 December 2019

U23s captain Anthony Glennon had nothing but praise, after the Clarets swept to the top of the table with to a 5-0 crushing of Bolton Wanderers on Monday.

Goals from Oliver Younger, Josh Benson, Ne-Jai Tucker, Rob Harker and Glennon secured Burnley all three points on a crisp afternoon at Curzon Ashton's Tameside Stadium.

Glennon curled in the fifth goal of the match from a free-kick, to round off an impressive afternoon for Andy Farrell's side.

And the left-back spoke of his pride after the game, as the unbeaten Clarets climbed to the summit.

“We are over the moon. It was a quality win and it’s always nice to get a few goals. A clean sheet for the defenders as well just tops it off, " said Glennon.

“Bolton were a young side, but you can only take on what’s in front of you.

“I thought Bolton gave it a go, but we stuck to our plan and it paid off with five well worked goals.

“Our lads did the job professionally, and it’s always nice to go top of the table - and the unbeaten run goes on in the league.

“But fair play to the lads, we did what we had to do and got the job done.

“It’s always nice to get on the score-sheet as well. It's the first one this season for me, so that’s always nice".

The win - and goal - rounded off a memorable couple of days for the Bootle-born defender, who was named on the bench for thre first team last weekend at Tottenham Hotspur.

It was only the second time the former Liverpool man had been named among the squad, following a call-up in April against Manchester City at Turf Moor.

And despite not featuring, the 20-year old admitted it was still an amazing opportunity.

He beamed: “It was an unbelievable experience. I am very grateful to have got the chance even to just be around the first team.

“But to make the bench is an amazing moment for myself, especially at a stadium like that, against Tottenham.

“I just hope I can push on and hopefully get another opportunity. It shows you get your rewards if you work hard, so it was nice for me and Mace (Goodridge) to get that opportunity".
