CLARETS fans are being asked to pay their respects at Harry Potts Way, outside Turf Moor, for the funeral of club legend Jimmy Adamson.

Burnley Football Club’s former captain and manager died on Tuesday aged 82, and his cortege will pass Turf Moor at 1-50 p.m. on Monday.

Former team-mate Jimmy McIlroy is flying home from a holiday in Spain for the funeral which will be held at Burnley Crematorium.

Police are closing Harry Potts Way for the cortege to make its way past and allow fans to show their gratitude to the club’s league-winning captain.
