Burnley F.C. of the English Premier League must be pretty pleased this morning, as the two Premier Development League teams with which it has worked have moved on to the PDL Final Four.
The Cary Clarets, who took Burnley's nickname after striking a partnership with the Lancashire club, clipped the host Des Moines Menace Friday night. That result came while the Ventura County Fusion, who served host to Burnley this month and may partner with the club in the future, were in the process of beating the Kitsap Pumas.
Both teams play today for the right to play next week in the PDL final.
