Burnley Shadow Youth Team win Danny Seager Memorial Trophy

10 May 2019

On Sunday 28th April, Boston United invited the Burnley FC Shadow Youth Team to play against their academy Under 19 youth squad in the Danny Seager Memorial Trophy at The Jakemans Stadium.

The memorial trophy was in honour of former club hero, Danny Seager, who sadly passed away – and local supporters of the club were invited to attend and show their support.

The game itself was very close and competitive. Boston took the lead in the first half, and pushed for a second, however, Burnley made numerous interceptions and challenges. The Burnley Shadow Youth Team started the second half with more energy and purpose, and with 13 minutes remaining the opposing team were given a free-kick that was hit into the top corner to level the score.

The game finished 1-1 and went straight to penalties, with the shootout finishing 3-1 to the Burnley Shadow Youth Team. The trophy was presented by family members of Danny Seager to Shadow Youth Team captain Harry Groves.

After the Danny Seager Memorial Trophy game, there was a Community Cup match between Boston United FC Community Foundation and Burnley FC in the Community, which ended 0-8 to Burnley.

We would like to thank both Burnley squads for coming along, and well done to both teams.
