Louis Page Collection now at Burnley FC

Another hugely important collection, relating to one of Burnley Football Club’s greatest-ever players, is now on display at Turf Moor.

Burnley Football Club is proud to show off a selection of Louis Page’s shirts, caps and medals, now housed in the club’s trophy cabinet within the Doctor Iven Hospitality Lounge.

Louis is the only Burnley player in the club’s history to score a double hat-trick in a senior match. It came in a sensational 7-1 victory in a First Division fixture at Birmingham on 10 April 1926, after Louis, normally a winger, was asked to play at centre forward.

After signing from Northampton Town in 1925 Louis went on to make 259 senior appearances for Burnley, scoring 115 goals, before he was transferred to Manchester United in 1932.

He is one of only six players in the Clarets’ history to score 100 League goals for the club.

Louis played for England on seven occasions, all during his time at Turf Moor, including a memorable 2-1 victory against Scotland at Hampden Park in April 1927, in which his great friend, Everton’s Dixie Dean, scored twice. Louis also appeared in the only full international fixture staged at Turf Moor, against Wales in November 1927.

He was an excellent all-round sportsman and also played many times for England at baseball, popular during the 1920’s and 1930’s. Included in our display is one of Louis’s international baseball caps awarded in 1931.

Louis was one of four brothers, all of whom were professional footballers and all were baseball internationals.

The Louis Page collection has been very kindly loaned to Burnley FC by Louis’s son, Mr Terry Page, and members of the Page family.

The club is extremely grateful for their generosity and support
