Henri Ogunby Joins Clarets In U23 Professional Development League Trial

Burnley Football Club are currently running the rule over Manchester City youngster Henri Ogunby with the winger featuring for the Clarets U23’s in Monday’s Professional Development League win over Sheffield United Football Club.

The Bolton-born teenager played the full ninety minutes as a trialist as Clarets won the game 2-0. Ogunby, featured for Manchester City U21’s in the Football League Trophy defeat to Bolton Wanderers this season playing seventy-three minutes of the 2-1 defeat.

The youngster, who turns nineteen this month still has eighteen months remaining on his contract at the Etihad Stadium. Having joined City in 2013, he has mainly featured on the right hand side of midfield or as a wide attacker during his Academy career to date and has featured once for the club’s U23 side in Premier League Two this term.

Speaking about Henri Ogunby’s performance, Clarets U23 manager Andy Farrell felt the trialist acquitted himself well, “Henri has come in and I don’t think he has played as much as ours so he needs a bit of game time. He probably looked a little bit laboured at times in the second half but it is not through the lack of trying. He knows where he wants to be but it is just a little bit of tiredness but he showed some really good touches.”
