Having worked his way through Saints' junior ranks, Callum Burns signed on full time to the Senior Academy during the summer of 2020.
The young hooker skippered Saints' Under-18s side through the 2019/20 campaign while also featuring for his local team Old Northamptononians. Burns – who came into the Northampton set-up relatively late – impressed the Academy coaching staff while captaining Northampton School for Boys to the National Schools Cup semi-finals.
Featuring there alongside fellow Saint Ethan Grayson, Burns' strong leadership skills quickly earned him a regular place in the Under-18s side and saw him don the Black, Green and Gold in all five of Saints' outings in the Premiership Rugby U18 League in 2019/20 before joining the Senior Academy ahead of the 2020/21 season.
