Manchester United Academy duo join Burnley
Manchester United Academy duo, Owen Dodgson and Calen Gallagher-Allison have left the
Manchester United academy to join Burnley.
Burnley announced the recruitment of the pair, who had been on trial with The Clarets since the start
of the season.
Dodgson, 17, and Gallagher-Allison, 18, are still listed in the United Under-18s section on the club’s website
but have signed contracts with Burnley.
The duo returned to Carrington for the United academy’s training sessions in July but Burnley wrote
on their website: “Dodgson has featured for Steve Stone’s U23 side and Tony Philliskirk’s U18 side,
can operate as a left-back and as a left-midfielder.
“And the Lancaster-born youngster scored for the U23s last week against Aston Villa, in the 2-2 draw
at Leyland. “Meanwhile, Gallagher-Allison has played the majority of the U18s’ Northern
Premier League matches.
