Burnley secure 5 young guns to new deals - including Casper grandson

Burnley have secured five teenagers to scholarship forms.

Four of the five youngsters, who will be a part of Tony Philliskirk's U18 side for the upcoming season, have joined from outside the club, while goalkeeper Charlie Casper - grandson of former manager and player Frank Casper - has come through the U16s to earn a scholarship. He is the son of former Manchester United defender Chris Casper.

Defender Nathan James and midfielder Wiktor Gromek, who is a Poland U16 international, both join the Clarets from Leicester City.

Meanwhile, left-sided defender Trevon Bryan joins from a London Football Academy School and goalkeeper Harry Moss joins from North-East based Park View Academy of Sport.

Head of Academy Coaching Ian Jones said: "It was great to welcome the new lads to Turf Moor and to the club on Sunday.

"It's always a special day for them to come and sign their scholarship, alongside their families and it's a proud moment for them too.

"And it's good for the academy staff to meet the families of the players, as they move away from home for the first time and into digs organised through the club."
