Career[edit]

Early years[edit]

Burns started his career with Cliftonville where he was capped by Northern Ireland at Under-18 level. He made his first team debut for the club, aged 17 in the Setanta Cup against Sligo.[1] He studied at Corpus Christi College, Belfast.

Oldham Athletic[edit]

After visiting Oldham Athletic on trial in April 2010, along with Carl Winchester[2] he joined the club in May 2010 on a two year scholarship.[3]

He was named in matchday squads and was an unused substitute in matches against Accrington Stanley and Dagenham early in the 2010/11 season[1] before making his senior debut for the club on 30 April 2011, starting the League One match against Swindon Town.[4]

Burns was not offered a professional contract and so was informed he was being released by Oldham in April 2012 .[5]
