Apprentice of the Month - December 2012

Apprentice of the Month – December 2012

Burnley’s Cameron Howieson has been named as LFE’s Apprentice of the Month for December 2012.

In a busy year on the pitch for the youngster the award reflects the young Kiwi’s educational achievements and commitment to the Apprenticeship programme.

“It’s great news for Cameron and very well deserved,” said Burnley’s Academy Manager Jason Blake.

“We are talking about a player who has had regular first-team involvement in training, who has travelled with the team recently and played for his country in the Olympic Games in the summer.”

Howieson who became a full international for New Zealand last season, also marked December by helping the Clarets beat Manchester United in the FA Youth Cup third round, scoring one of the goals in a 4-3 win at Old Trafford, and was part of Burnley’s travelling first-team squad for their FA Cup tie at Barnsley earlier this month.

“After having no break he came back for the season a little bit later than the rest but despite doing all these things has managed to maintain his education programme and has been doing additional sessions to his college programme, which does him massive credit.

“With all the additional things he has been doing, to maintain his devotion to his education, as well as really kicking on, on the pitch, is a great example to all the players in the Academy that no matter what stage they are at they invest time off the pitch to protect their futures.”
