The Clarets and its Youth Policy

Last updated : 22 February 2002 By Tony Scholes

Jack Hixon's appearance at the Turf highlighted it as did the sad loss of George Bray last week. George had played a major part in the coaching of youngsters for many years including our current manager who, as Jack Hixon insists, shall be called Francis Stanley Ternent.

Jack has sent so many youngsters to Gawthorpe over the years and this week the youth team squad included four of Hixon's Lads in Sean Blakey, Andrew Leeson, Mark Rasmussen and Steven Richardson.

Oldroyd's Turf also takes a look at the youth set up this week in an article entitled Old Legend Shows Way to the Future. This can be found in the Clarets Columns section.
