Burnley beat competition from Brighton and Hove Albion, Huddersfield Town, Notts County, Swindon Town and Torquay United to claim the overall award, for the second time in four years.

Presented as a magazine, rather than a programme, Claret & You offers supporters a bright, colourful, feature-packed publication.

Designed and produced in-house, the magazine includes player features, nostalgia, celebrity contributors and bespoke imagery as well as utilising social media to generate content.

On winning the award Riding said, “We have put in some late nights in the office this season but we don’t mind because we are all fans of the club.

“We have fantastic writers and two really good photographers and that resource means we’re able to bring something new to the publication each year.”
