REPORT: Hull City U18s 2 Burnley U18s 4

A youthful Burnley side came away with all three points against Hull City on Saturday, with a 4-2 win over the Tigers in the Professional Development League.

Goals from Jayden Major, Finlay Armstrong, Corey Brennan and U16 youngster, Kade Ratchford, saw Tony Philliskirk's side move five points clear of fourth place, and close the gap to nine points, to second place Sheffield United.

It was a very young Burnley side lining up at Bishop Burton College, with all the regular scholars unavaliable, after featuring for the U23s on Thursday, there was just two second-year scholars in the 11, with a defence of first-year scholars and a full midfield of U16s, all making their debut for the youth team.
