The intrusion of the youth players to the professional first-team 

Recently, in the transfer window of this year, seven young footballers from the academy side have signed their first professional contracts with Burnley. They are Max Thompson, Sam Unwin, Calen Gallagher-Allison, Harry Allen, Ne-Jai Tucker, Owen Dodgson, and Lewis Thomas. 

These players are all from the Under-23 squad last season. All seven players are likely to be part of the club to travel to Scotland in the middle of July 2021 for a training camp at Stirling University. Notably, striker Max Thompson has been the top scorer of the Burnley U23 squad, also had his first Premier League debut for Manchester City last year, as a substitute. He also spent time at Everton and The Red Devils in his youth career before playing for U23 Burnley.

Burnley Football Club’s profile 

History

Burnley Football Club is an association football club based in the namesake small town in Lancashire, England. The club has a rich history with 139 years of existence. They were founded on 18 May 1882 by members of the rugby team Burnley Rovers. After one year, Burnley became professional and were one of the founding members of the Football League in 1888-89.

The club has played at Turf Moor with a capacity of 21,944 since 1883 as their home ground. This is the second-longest continuously used stadium in English professional football. The club had the nickname “The Clarets” due to the prominent claret color on their home shirts.  

Honors

Burnley used to be relatively successful in the past as they won the First Division two times before it became the Premier League, or ranking in the top teams that get promoted to other major competitions. However, in the modern era, The Clarets lost their manner and usually stood in the bottom group, as well as not being qualified for the competitions in some seasons.

They joined the FA Cup for the first time in the 1885-86 season and until 1913-14, Burnley became the winner of this cup competition, followed by two runners-up finishes in 1946-47 and 1961-62. They also reached the quarter-finals of the European Cup in the 1960-61 season. Despite not being known as a strong English football club, Burnley is one of the only five clubs who have won all four professional divisions of English football, along with Wolverhampton Wanderers, Preston North End, Sheffield United, and Portsmouth.
