Just Like Shearer, Jokes Legzdins

Goal hero Adam Legzdins admitted he needed persuading to claim his moment of glory.

The Clarets’ goalkeeper scored his first ever goal to earn the Under-23s a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace in the Premier League Cup.

Legzdins nodded in a Josh Benson corner in injury time – but kept his emotions under wraps as the Clarets extended their unbeaten start to the season to 15 games.

“I saw the bat signal go up………” laughed Legzdins, featuring as an over-age player in the Group G tie switched to the Clarets’ training ground because of a waterlogged pitch at Bamber Bridge.
