Under 13 Coaches David Clegg and Jo Butterworth’s overview of the 2017/18 season.

This year has been a real turning point for the squad.

There were some tough away games particularly away to St Annes. However, the Clarets win against the tough opponent was commented on by parents from both teams as one of the best games of football they have seen at this level.

Brilliantly, the Under 13 Blue team are undefeated champions of the North Valley and Burnley Unity Youth Football League.

The improvement and progression the players have been fantastic, battling every game and playing some super football. The coaches are immensely proud of the squads for their efforts, desire, endeavour and respect.
