Vintage Clarets have donated a cheque to Ian Britton for £666.

Britton, scorer of one of the biggest goals in Burnley’s history - in the Orient Game in 1987 - has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

The former Chelsea midfielder played 108 games for the Clarets, scoring 10 goals - none more important than his header to stave off relegation from the Football League.
