Alty is first date for the pre-season diary
Questions continue to be asked about Burnley’s pre-season programme but as yet there is no news from the club to confirm either a potential pre-season trip or further friendly games. But there is a date for the diary for the development squad with a game at Altrincham.
Altrincham have confirmed that they will play a Burnley XI on Friday 29th July with a 7:45 p.m. kick off and this will be the first time the clubs have met in pre-season since 2013. On that occasion, as this game is expected to be, it was against our development squad with Altrincham winning the game 3-2, the Burnley goals coming from Steven Hewitt and Jamie Frost.
It was a third successive season that we’d played them at Moss Rose; the previous two opening up the first team’s pre-season programme. We won 4-2 in 2011 with the goals coming from Alex MacDonald, Chris Eagles, Martin Paterson and Chris Iwelumo and a year later won 4-1. On that occasion the Burnley goals were scored by Chris McCann, Danny Ings and two from Charlie Austin.Share this page :
