8 November 2019

Youth team duo Chris Conn-Clarke and Lewis Richardson have both been called up internationally, for Northern Ireland U19s and England U17s respectively.

First-year scholar, Richardson, who has played all this season for the the Clarets' U23s squad, had to withdraw from his last two call-up's for the Three Lions, through injury.

However, the young striker will be hoping for a third time lucky, where he will link up with Kevin Betsy's side next week.
