Youth team start with win

Last updated : 22 February 2003 By Tony Scholes

The game got underway far too early for some, in fact it kicked off fifteen minutes before the scheduled time and late comers missed the Clarets not just going in front but taking an early 3-0 lead with goals from Richard Chaplow, Damien Hindle and Robert Grimes.

Incredibly Carlisle were just one behind at the interval after the Clarets were unable to keep the early pressure on.

Things could have got worse in the early stages of the second half but it was the young Clarets who finished the stronger and Joel Pilkington goal completed the scoring.

The team was: James Salisbury, James Heywood, Tom Ince, Joel Pilkington, Ryan Townsend, Liam Eves, Steven Richardson, Richard Chaplow, Damien Hindle, Robert Grimes, Matthew O’Neill. Subs: Michael Hale, Mark Rasmussen, Rhys Carpenter, Darryl Avery, Marc Pugh.

Our full report will appear tomorrow.
