Preview: Burnley U18s v Everton U18s

Youths host Everton at Barnfield Training Centre

19 July 2019

Tony Philliskirk's side will host Everton in their second pre-season friendly tomorrow (Saturday) at the Barnfield Training Centre.

The U18s, who fly out to Prague on Tuesday afternoon to take part in the CEE Cup, won 3-0 in their opening pre-season fixture last weekend against AFC Bournemouth.

Despite having a much younger side with a handful of scholars being away in Poland with Steve Stone's U23 side, Philliskirk's side cruised through their first warm-up match of the summer.

It is likely that it will be a full strength squad to face the Toffees, with second-year scholars Mitch George, Edon Pruti and Matty Rain returning to training this week, alongside first-year apprentice Ben Woods.

The last time the Clarets' U18s faced Everton was in Prague in 2017, where the two sides met in the final of the CEE Cup, which Philliskirk's side will take part in from 23rd-30th July.

Live updates from the U18s' clash with Everton which kicks off at 11:00am, will be available on Twitter (@Burnleyofficial) followed by report and reaction.
