Burnley FC pair secure loan moves to AFC Barrow
The teenage pair have joined the Bluebirds until January and link up with the management team of Dave Bayliss and ex-Burnley coach Ashley Hoskin ahead of Barrow’s opening league game of the season against AFC Telford on Saturday.
Jackson, who has just started his second season as a professional at Turf Moor, returns to his hometown club for a second loan spell after a three-month stint at the end of last season.
The 19-year-old scored three times in eight appearances for the Cumbrian club before being re-called by the Clarets to make his senior debut as a substitute at Blackpool in April.
And he returns to the Furness Building Society Stadium in top form after scoring a hat-trick for the Clarets’ Development Squad in their 4-0 win at Droylsden last Saturday, when second-year scholar Luke Gallagher was also on target.
Meanwhile, the move will be Anderson’s first away from Turf Moor after coming through the Clarets’ youth ranks.
The big defender was a key member of Burnley’s successful youth team last season and a regular at reserve level before a bout of glandular fever curtailed his campaign at the end of February.
However, the 18-year-old signed a professional contract in the summer and now gets the chance to play senior competitive football for the first time.
The pair will join forces again with former Burnley team-mate Alex-Ray Harvey, who has signed a 12-month deal at Barrow following a successful loan spell from the Clarets last season.
