“Max Thompson, Sam Unwin, Harry Allen, Calen Gallagher-Allison, Owen Dodgson, Ne-Jai Tucker and Lewis Thomas have all penned deals after completing their scholarships with Burnley.

“The septet began life as professionals as the Under-23s returned to start pre-season training.

“They are then likely to be part of the squad that travels to Scotland next week for a training camp at Stirling University.

“All seven of the young players featured for the Clarets’ Under-23s last season as Steve Stone’s side just missed out on a place in the play-offs in their first season in the second tier of Premier League 2.

“Wingman Tucker – an 18-year-old Bermuda youth international – steps into the professional ranks after spending seven years coming through the Academy set-up at Turf Moor where the Clarets are continuing to nurture young players on a potential pathway to the Premier League.”
