VIDEO: 'Boro starlet scores a cracker down by the Riverside

The left-back from Bryan Robson’s old hometown unleashed a humdinger against Burnley last night.

SOME SAY THAT it is grim up North but Middlesborough’s Adam Reach brightened up affairs at the Riverside last night.

The 19-year-old left-back was playing in a more advanced role in his side’s Championship outing against Burnley when he decided to let fly.

Reach’s swerving strike caught goalkeeper Luke Steele wrong-footed and he failed to get a touch on the ball despite a back-pedalling dive.

Middlesborough won 3-2 and there was more for the home support to cheer as Luke Williams scored a fine, long-range goal in the 88th minute.

The Teeside club also handed a debut to loan-signing Josh McEachran, who arrived up from Chelsea at the weekend.
