Young Clarets fall to defeat at Barnfield

20 July 2019

Tony Philliskirk's side fell to a 3-1 defeat yesterday (Saturday) against Everton on a wet morning at the Barnfield Training Centre.

Despite taking the lead through Jayden Major after six minutes played, the visitors struck back twice in quick succession just before the break.

And the turn around was complete just 10 minutes before time, as the Toffees hit a third.

The Clarets started brightly and took the lead through a well-worked goal, as Rhys Fenlon played a neat ball into the path of Major, who fired home first time.

And Burnley controlled the majority of the half up until the 36th minute when the Everton forward struck home into the bottom corner.

Just moments later, the away side doubled their lead through the same attacker with a sweet strike past a stranded Harry Allen.

After the hour mark, Philliskirk introduced Eastmond, Moonan, Brennan, Connolly, Rooney, Armstrong and Carson to replace Rain, Patterson, Conley, George, Woods, Trialist and Fenlon.

However, despite the Clarets' best efforts at clawing an equaliser, it was the Merseysider's who snatched the next goal.

This match was Philliskirk's side final pre-season friendly on home soil before flying out to Prague on Tuesday to compete in the CEE Cup.

Burnley starting line-up: Allen, Patterson, Pruti, Conley, Rain, Tucker, Woods, Trialist, Fenlon, Major, George.
