Vince Overson - manages to arrange a game with Bury
The fixture at Wigan, due to kick off at 11:00 this morning at their training ground at Christopher Park, was called off by the Wigan club late yesterday and Burnley quickly arranged a game against Bury for this afternoon.

Bury’s youth team did play yesterday, beating Chorley 3-2 at Victory Park, Chorley, but their coach Chris Casper was only too keen to help out the Clarets with this hastily arranged game.

Burnley’s Head of Youth Development Vince Overson said, “"It was at short notice that the game at Wigan was cancelled because Paul Jewell wanted the youth team to play against the first team in a practice game.

"We have managed to arrange a game with Bury though, so we thank Chris Casper for agreeing to that."

The game will be played at Goshen in Bury and kicks off at 1.30pm.
