Burnley College played host to the Burnley Schools' U11 football finals last week.
Our CTK boys topped their group stage to progress to the later stages of the competition, where they faced tough opposition in the form of Briercliffe, St John's Burnley and Whittlefield school.

Premier League Primary Stars Tournament
2 November 2018
The u11 CTK boys football team visited Burnley FC’s Barnfield Training Centre last Wednesday, to part in the Burnley School’s Premier League Primary Stars football finals.
The level of competition was high, and the CTK team gave a great account of themselves both on and off the field, whilst displaying their talents throughout three hard-fought games.
In all the ties, CTK created several quality chances to score, and enjoyed a lot of the possession, spreading the play well and showing great resilience to work hard both on and off the ball. CTK were very unlucky on a number of occasions not to have scored after some impressive build up play. Midfield maestro Ollie had a host of chances denied by some excellent keeping, whilst fellow Year 5 pupil Harry saw at least one effort strike the bar.
CTK finished the tournament in 4th place, which is a fantastic achievement in itself, considering the amount of Burnley schools who competed in this year’s event. The determined performances were pleasing to see and the boys did the school very proud!
I would like to thank BFCITC, together with the Premier League, and all the BFC staff, for allowing the boys the chance to play in the same Premier League environment as their Burnley first-team idols.
Our congratulations also go out to Worsthorne Primary, who were the eventual tournament winners.
