Curzon Ashton will be home again for Burnley
Burnley have used Curzon Ashton’s Tameside Stadium this season for home games in our first season in the Professional Development League and that will continue in the 2018/19 season, it has been confirmed.
Teams have to play a minimum three games at the home stadium and Burnley have done that. We played Huddersfield on the Turf in November along with two recent home games against QPR and Crewe were also played. Of the remaining league games, six have gone ahead at the Tameside Stadium, home of National League North Curzon Ashton with a further five played at Gawthorpe.
We also played two of our home Premier League Cup ties at Curzon, those against Colchester and Swansea, whilst the Newcastle game was played at Edgeley Park, home of another National League North club Stockport County.
Coach Michael Duff is pleased with the news. “I think it’s been a good place to play,” he said. “The pitch is excellent, which is probably the most important thing. It’s a bit difficult for the first team players coming in, but for our lads it just gives a better feel than the training ground. It gives them a little stadium to play in and under the floodlights it’s always good.”
He added: “It’s worked well. They have looked after us well. The food is good after the game and we’re happy to be going back.”
Burnley have also confirmed that Tunde Bayode has signed the new one year deal that will see him remain a member of Duff’s squad next season.Share this page :
