FANS will have a unique chance to take their place on the Clarets’ official team photograph when Turf Moor opens its doors for a pre-season special.

The Clarets are hosting an open day on Saturday, 11 August with supporters invited to watch Eddie Howe’s first-team squad train on the pitch at Turf Moor as part of a fun-filled day.

And before kicking off the session, the team will line up for a photo-call with fans seated behind them in one of the stands to form part of the historic team picture and take their place in the Clarets’ squad.
