Burstow double takes Charlton Athletic into U18 Professional Development League Two play-off final

Mason Burstow scored a dramatic late winner for Charlton Athletic to take their U18 side through to the final of the Professional Development League Two play-off final.

The Addicks will face Wigan to decide who lifts the silverware.

Goals from Aaron Henry and Burstow had the home side 2-0 up in today’s semi-final against Birmingham City. But the visitors struck twice in the closing five minutes as the tie looked to be set for extra-time.

But Burstow rounded the Blues keeper before finishing into an empty net.

Wigan Athletic defeated Ipswich Town 2-1 after extra-time to secure their passage earlier today.
