Having been moved to Gawthorpe, supporters missed the opportunity to see a seven goal thriller when the under-23s came up against Norwich City with the Clarets winning the game 4-3.

It all started really well. Michael Mellon headed home a Joe McGlynn cross to give us the lead with only eight minutes gone and five minutes later it was 2-0 with McGlynn on the scoresheet as he hit home following a cross from Ben Woods.

It was all looking good and we were close to getting to half time with a two goal advantage only for Thomas Dickson-Peters to reduce the deficit for Norwich with the referee close to blowing to end the first half.

The second half didn’t start well either; Shae Hutchinson scored from outside the box to draw Norwich level and we had to start all over again if we wanted to win the game.

Start all over again we did. Within three minutes, central defender Jacob Bedeau (pictured) headed home to restore the lead and when Ne-Jai Tucker hammered home with just over twenty minutes to go it looked all over at 4-2.

Not so. Norwich pulled one back with Dickson-Peters getting his second of the game but they weren’t able to draw level again and Burnley ran out 4-3 winners to extend the unbeaten run to five games in the league and seven in all competitions.

The teams were;

Burnley: Sam Waller, Finlay Armstrong, Bobby Thomas (Jake Rooney 74), Jacob Bedeau, Anthony Glennon, Ne-Jai Tucker (Dara Costelloe 70), Ben Woods, Mark Helm, Owen Dodgson, Michael Mellon, Joe McGlynn (Max Thompson 76). Subs not used: Harry Allen, Ethen Vaughan.

Norwich: Joe Rose, Josh Giurgi, Saxon Earley, Jonathan Tomkinson, Jaden Warner, Nelson Khumbeni, Jon Rowe, Flynn Clarke, Abu Kamara, Shae Hutchinson, Thomas Dickson-Peters. Subs not used: Dylan Berry, Brad Hills, Lewis Shipley, Joe Duffy.
