With their recent league matches falling victim to the weather, two teams from Burnley FC Girls & Ladies were delighted to have the opportunity to play a mini game at Turf Moor.

Representatives from the club’s Under 12 and Under 13 teams played on the pitch at half-time in Burnley FC’s Premier League game against Newcastle. A fiercely competitive game ended with honours even, in a 1-1 draw.

As part of its affiliation with Burnley FC, Burnley Girls & Ladies teams will be able to play at half-time in three games this season. Under 13s boss Tim said “It is a great experience for the girls, many of whom are Burnley fans. They all thoroughly enjoy it and it gives them some great memories. We would like to thank Burnley FC for giving the girls this opportunity”.
