Alex played at Burnley FC from the age of 7. He went all through the junior age groups and became a YTS at 16yrs of age.
At Burnley, he played at various times with other Colne FC players Ed Williams, Chris Anderson, Chris Bailey & Adam Stockdale.
He captained the Youth team in the semi final of the FA Cup against Blackburn and in the previous round v Fulham. That season he won the Youth team Player of the year and was offered a pro deal. He captained Burnley Reserves in his last season in the Youth team and then for the next 2 seasons as a pro.
He went on loan to Droylsden who are in the Conference North and was Captain of the team when they got to the semi final of the FA Under 21 Cup.
A young but vastly experienced former professional, Alex, is another superb capture for the club.
