WITH Burnley’s first and third team matches postponed due to the weather the spotlight was firmly on Gus Fergusons second team.
They did not disappoint either, turning on a brilliant performance to overcome a tough Oldham side away from home 38-12 and move up to third in their league .
A brace of tries from Rick Griffiths and tries from Ben Healey did most of the damage.
Burnley even managed to score while they were temporarily reduced to 13 men, a testament to the great spirit within the team.
Sadly this marked the last game for Garth Botha who has been a great servant of the club but returns to his native South Africa to take up another opportunity.
The club are planning a tour at the end of season in May to Frankfurt Germany, 25 years after their last visit there. Anyone interested in going or assisting with sponsorship should contact Patrick on 454795.
