Just realised that I am going to be in Burnley on the day of the U-18s cup match (11 Dec) so I have arranged to stay over and watch the game. According to the Burnley website it's a 7pm kick-off and entry is £2 (£4 for whipper-snappers). Might find myself as a crowd of 1 but definitely looking forward to it!

You'll enjoy it - and (given the chance) play quite a sophisticated style of football, so there's very hope of a decent game

Gobbo says he is driving up after training on Tuesday, so it will be a crowd of at least 2 then!
And I could use some some help identifying the players. I can recognise Owen James because he warmed up in front of us at FGR, and Fabio Lopes is pretty distinctive, but after that I'll be struggling. I don't suppose that they will hand out a teamsheet.

Just picked up my ticket. They are expecting to sell 'about 300'. They seem to be taking this game pretty seriously, even going to cover it on their main twitter feed. And they are very confident they are going to win.

Evans, Sampford, Jones, McCreadie, Niblett, Lofthouse, Chambers-Parillon, Owen James, Lopez, Spasov, Elechi. Strong side. Gobbo & Faz on the pitch and Chris Hackett with a lot less hair than when he played.

Despite the early set back, it would seem we are dominating possession and playing some great stuff. The better team by all accounts on the radio commentary.

Getting much more of the ball now but the short corners are poor. Their No 11 is flying past Sandford but not much of a threat from the others.

HT 1-0. Still in it. Some thoughts - Nico Jones is HUGE but a bit slow for this level. Elechi is everywhere could be another Baptiste. James and Spasov look class but Lopez doesn't look fit. McCreadie gave the ball away a lot to start with but got much better and ran the last 15 minutes. Chambers-Parillon completely anonymous. And I didn't know we had two blonde lady physios with ponytails.
