Burnley Release Midfielder Hewitt
Burnley Football Club have confirmed that midfielder Steven Hewitt has been released by the club after having his contract cancelled by mutual consent.
The former Burnley scholar, 22, made two first team league appearances from the bench, in April, 2012 and December, 2013, while his solitary start for the club came in the League Cup in August, 2012.
Hewitt enjoyed two loan spells while at Turf Moor, spending three months at Alfreton Town in 2013 before spending the remaining month of the 2014/15 season at Southport.
Clarets boss Sean Dyche said: “Naturally it’s a sad day for Stevie, we just felt the challenge of getting into our first team was a step too far, but he has been a credit to himself and his family with his professionalism.
He just wasn’t at our current standard, but we do believe he has a future ahead of him in pastures new, so we wish him all the best in his footballing career.”
