Meet the legends



There will be a late-night signing event in Burnley FC's Turf Moor shop on Thursday, 30 November. You're invited to call in for a glass of wine and a mince pie and the opportunity to meet four stars of the 70s and Jimmy Adamson’s great side - Frank Casper, Colin Waldron, Jim Thomson and Paul Fletcher.

They will be on hand between 6-8pm to sign books and other items, in particular the two newest books in the club shop.

Mud, Sweat and Shears is a behind-the-scenes story of the club filled with football stories and anecdotes from the 70s and 80s when Roy Oldfield was the groundsman and met a host of players and managers, all with a tale to tell. Written with Dave Thomas.

From Orient to Emirates is Tim Quelch's detailed story of the club from the iconic Orient game to the present day in the Premier League, in the words of the people who took part in this amazing re-birth of the club. 

The club are happy for you to bring other items to be signed along with purchases from the shop. And with Christmas approaching this is a good chance to buy that perfect claret gift for family and friends.
