Mace Goodridge is desperate to make an impact at Burnley.
The teenage midfielder saw a cruciate knee ligament injury cruelly ended his campaign last season and required surgery last November.
“I was at Manchester City from a young age and ended up on not getting my scholarship at City at 16, which was one of the first major set-backs I had to deal with," Goodridge explained to the club's website.
“I bounced back from that and ended up getting quite a few scholarship offers.
“I decided to take one at Newcastle and I quite enjoyed my time there, but I didn't really get many opportunities to progress and I found it quite hard living away from home.
“I didn't get another contract at Newcastle, so that was another set-back. Then the first club I came to on trial was Burnley and I felt at home straight away and felt I really settled in and that's brought me to where I am today."
