On This Day In 2016: Robbie Leitch Signs With Burnley FC

Four years ago today Robbie Leitch made his dream move to English Premiership side Burnley.

Leitch made the move to Lancashire after impressive performances at his hometown club Motherwell, in Scotland and immediately joined up with the "Clarets" under 23 side.

Robbie came through the youth academy at Motherwell, winning the 2015-16 Scottish Youth Cup before making the move south to Lancashire.

After his spell at Burnley, Robbie signed for St Mirren and was sent out on loan to Queens Park for his first taste of first team professional football.

After returning from his loan spell, he spent time in Croatia joining NK Novigrad but returned to Scotland, signing for Falkirk at the start of the 2019-20 season. He signed a loan deal in January 2020 with Forfar Athletic and has featured frequently during his spell there. Now as we look ahead to the 2020/2021 season, Robbie has returned to his parent club Falkirk.
