Solid performance from Burnley against Hutton

First published in Sport

A solid performance by Burnley in difficult conditions saw them remain in the hunt for a top seven place in North Lancs Two.

The Holden Road side were forced in to some late changes with Billy Lancaster, usually in the second row, played well as a make shift back row and won valuable ball in the line out from Hutton's throw.

Alistair Quinn also came in on the wing and his strong running was one of the highlights of the game.

Burnley were first to open the scoring when Brian Kelly stretched over the line from a blindside move following a strong scrum by the home team.

The conversion attempt was missed but Burnley were on top now with inside centre Ryan Bradley making strong runs while captain Nino Angelone alongside brother Luca and hooker Danny Marshall formed a strong as a front row.

It was no surprise that Burnley cross again when Matt Higson received a ball from Angelone to power over to make it 10-0 at the break.

Hutton pressed early in the second half but only had a penalty to show for their efforts.

That was largely due to Burnley’s formidable defence from one to 15.

It was left to winger Matt Crowley to round off the scoring as as he rounded is man, chipped through and beat the defender to the ball.

Burnley will be looking for another fine all-round performance when they travel to Garstang who they narrowly lost to earlier in the season.
