Under-23s beaten by Stoke
The under-23s have fallen to a 2-1 defeat this afternoon against Stoke City at Leyland in Division 2 of Premier League 2.
A Stoke side, managed by former Burnley striker Kevin Russell who we signed from Stoke in the summer of 1993, took the lead when D’Margio Wright-Phillips, son of Sean and grandson of another former Burnley striker Ian Wright, scored on 35 minutes but it was a short lived lead with Max Thompson equalising within two minutes when he struck home following a header down from defender Richard Nartey.
But it was Stoke who went on to win it with a Kieran Coates goal twelve minutes into the second half on an afternoon when referee Aaron Jackson was busy showing eight yellow cards, just two of them, for Ben Woods and Marcel Elva-Fountaine, going our way.
It’s just a second defeat in nine for the Clarets.
The teams were;
Burnley: Marc Richter, Connor Barrett (Marcel Elva-Fountaine 29), Richard Nartey, Jake Rooney, Owen Dodgson, Ne-Jai Tucker (Sam Unwin 79), Ben Woods, Anthony Gomez Mancini, Dara Costelloe, Lewis Richardson, Max Thompson. Subs not used: Lewis Thomas, Arman Taranis, Calen Gallagher-Allison.
