We have recently been hearing about the way the Clarets’ promotion to the Premiership will raise the profile of the town around the world.
In the early ’60s I had first-hand experience of this. As the scouter in charge of the 16th Burnley Senior Scouts I led a party of 10 senior scouts on a trip to the Black Forest, Germany.
When booking our party in at a youth hostel in a mountain village, I was met with the comment: “Ah, Burnley FC”. This was when, along with Spurs, we were the country’s top two teams.
Good luck to Sean and the team next year.
