Glenavon duo and Warrenpoint star shortlisted for Ulster Young Player of the Year

Glenavon's Bobby Burns and Mark Sykes have been shortlisted for the coveted Ulster Young Player of the Year award alongside Warrenpoint's Lorcan Forde

The accolade, which is awarded by the Castlereagh Glentoran Supporters' Club, is separate to the Northern Ireland Football Writers' prize. The winner will be announced on April 23.

Burns, one of few players to have played in defence, midfield and attack this season, has started 30 of Glenavon's 31 Premiership games this season, scoring four league goals.

At only 18 years of age, the St Malachy's College Head Boy is hotly tipped to forge a career beyond the Irish League.

"Thanks very much hopefully the teachers aren’t too harsh with the homework that night," tweeted Burns after the announcement.

His Glenavon team-mate Sykes has hit the headlines with some Rolls Royce displays in central midfield and has attracted interest from a plethora of professional clubs. He has netted nine Premiership goals in 25 starts this term.

Forde, meanwhile, has earned raved reviews for his attacking displays. He has started in just 16 Premiership games but, scoring four goals, has earned admirers from across the league.

He even earned a trip to train with Premier League side Burnley last month as he too looks to seal a route into the professional game.
