Clarets young guns offered professional terms
Burnley have offered two second year apprentices professional contracts.
Youth team captain Adam Kay and striker Alex MacDonald have both been rewarded with deals after being fast-tracked into the first team squad in the 2007/08 season.
Burnley-born Kay, 18, is a product of St. Theodore's High School and was ever present in the very successful Lancashire Schools FA team.
A skilful and athletic central midfielder, he came to the Centre of Excellence from local junior side Borrowdale United.
Adam, who registered as a first team player in December 2007, has yet to make his first team debut.
MacDonald, who hails from Warrington, joined the Centre at the beginning of the 2005/06 season, having been spotted playing for Cheshire Schoolboys.
In March 2008, he stepped up to train with the Clarets first team and capped a remarkable few months with his first team debut in the final home game of the 2007/08 season against Cardiff City.
Remaining second year apprentices Thomas Bradley, Lewis Craig, Jonathan Sergeant, Dean Stott and Rob Turner have not been offered professional contracts.
