CLARETS players spread some Christmas cheer when they made their annual trip to see poorly children in hospital.

Burnley Football Club players and staff, including new manager Sean Dyche and captain Chris McCann, visited the children’s ward at the Royal Blackburn Hospital to chat to the children. Goal-getter Charlie Austin was among those handing out club annuals, scarves and toys to the children.
