Pre-season kicks off with a couple of wins
Burnley kicked off pre-season this afternoon with two games against Morecambe and Salford with both games taking place at Gawthorpe.
Playing simultaneous games was introduced in 2017 when we played at Kidderminster and Alfreton on the same day but today, as was the case last year, it was at the training ground with the Morecambe game being played on the top pitch alongside the drive in and the Salford game in front of the main building on the other side of the river.
They both ended in victories. We beat Morecambe 2-1 with goals from Ashley Barnes and Jóhann Berg Guðmundsson and the Salford game ended in a 4-0 win with two goals each from Josh Benson and Jay Rodriguez.
The Burnley teams were;
v Morecambe: Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Matt Lowton, James Tarkowski, Bobby Thomas, Erik Pieters, Jóhann Berg Guðmundsson, Ashley Westwood, Jack Cork, Anthony Glennon (Ne-Jai Tucker), Ashley Barnes, Lewis Richardson.
v Salford: Will Norris (Trialist), Phil Bardsley, Nathan Collins (Jacob Bedeau), Ben Mee, Charlie Taylor, Max Thompson, Josh Brownhill, Josh Benson, Dwight McNeil, Jay Rodriguez, Rob Harker.Share this page :
