Goals from Charlie Stevens and Karlos Gregory ensured AFC Bournemouth’s under-18s ended their Professional Development League campaign with victory at Burnley.

The Cherries sealed a 2-1 victory over the young Clarets at their Padiham training centre.

Under-18s boss James Lowy told afcb.co.uk: “It was a really good performance from the group for the last game of the season.

“Again, it was a really good challenge with our squad including a number of young players from the academy.

“Being able to shuffle the team around and include the other younger lads, they all made a real positive impact on the game.

“That was a really great moment for the academy. All that hard work that goes on, that they were able to come into an under-18s game and have a great impact.

“Collectively as a group it was an excellent team performance and a great way to cap off our first year in category two.”

Stevens, who is part of the Wales squad for this summer’s Under-17 Euros, put the Cherries ahead on 41 minutes after the visitors won the ball high up the pitch.

Kian McMahon-Brown's effort from the edge of the area then put Burnley level at 1-1 before the decisive moment in the game came four minutes later.

Midfielder Gregory, who was captaining the Cherries, sealed the three points after converting from the penalty spot.

Lowy’s group, who also reached the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup this season, finished fifth in the South Group, with 39 points from 29 games played.
