It wasn’t just a Good Friday for Burnley Under 24s, it was an excellent one as they demolished neighbours Blackburn 67-7.

Burnley’s scorers were Tom Ives, Dec Hutchinson, Joe Haley, George Hibbert, James Mackem, Austen Ralph, a brace from Olly Lord and a hat-trick from Luca Angelone, with Adam Spencer adding six conversions.

Tomorrow the firsts conclude their league fixtures at Birchfield. There will be a coach leaving at noon, all welcome.

The thirds are at Aspull, at 3 p.m., and Burnley v Arsenal will be shown in the clubhouse afterwards.

On Sunday the Under 7-11s are at Littleborough, and the Under 13/15s host the same opposition, while the girls’ sides are at the Keswick Festival.

The club are organising a veterans match at Rossendale on Sunday, May 3rd – anyone interested in playing can contact Simon or Paddy at

The junior awards night will take place next Friday.
