Gawthorpe friendly for under-18s
The midweek game against Liverpool was called off but tomorrow morning’s under-18 friendly against Everton will be played prior to the squad going to Prague for the CEE Cup in which they did so well two years ago when sponsored by Up the Clarets.
We reached the final in 2017 and met tomorrow’s opponents Everton in a really enjoyable final that ended in a 3-1 defeat with Michael Fowler, who is now with Fleetwood, scoring our goal.
Last week we beat Bournemouth at St. George’s Park and it was a very young team with a number of the squad having gone to Poland with the under-23s. Second year scholars Cricky Conn-Clarke, Mitch George, Edon Pruti and Matty Rain were all with the older group as was first year scholar Ben Woods but all are back with the squad now, although Conn-Clarke did play in Wednesday’s defeat at Stalybridge.
This is the only home pre-season game for the under-18s who fly out to Prague on Tuesday ahead of the CEE Cup where we have been grouped with SE Palmeiras, Altinordu FK and SK Slavia Praha with the first game scheduled for Wednesday.
Tomorrow’s game at Gawthorpe kicks off at 11:00 a.m.Share this page :
