During The Texo Tour, the young Clarets will play the academy side of Scottish Championship champions, Heart of Midlothian.


Ahead of the 2021/22 campaign, the First Team and the Academy will be travelling to Edinburgh for a pre-season tour.

On Saturday, 17th July, Mickey Spillane’s side will face The Spartans FC’s academy team and that game will be followed by the two sides’ senior teams playing one another.

To finish The Texo Tour, the Academy will now face Hearts on Monday, 19th July at Ainslie Park.

Kick-off against the Jam Tarts will be at 10:30am.

The Club would like to thank Spartans for their assistance in organising the friendly between the two under-18 sides.
