Biography:
Bobby Burns came through the Northern Ireland schools and youth set-ups playing largely as a holding midfielder and occasionally as a winger. He captained the Under-18 side to the Centenary Shield in 2017. At the same time he was enjoying a successful spell at Knockbreda where he played regularly as a forward for the first time in his career. The following season he established himself the Glenavon forward line, despite having the squad number three. He was still just 18 when awarded his first Under-21 cap. In May 2018 he agreed to join Hearts on a three year contract for an undisclosed free.
