Burnley U18 coach John Townson is delighted with the progress of 15 year-old striker Lewis Richardson.

Richardson scored five goals in their 6-1 win over Crewe Alexandra last week.

Townson said: “Lewis is delighted and rightly so.

"He was excellent today and I am really pleased for him.

“I've known him a few years now and he's a level-headed lad, so I don't think it well get to him at all."
