Burnley Football Club

Regular price $23.00 $0.00


This collection of over 200 photographs and items of memorabilia
traces the course of one of English football’s most famous clubs, from
its birth in 1882 to the watershed period of the late 1960s. As a founder
member of the Football League in 1888, the club from Turf Moor played
its part in the development and expansion of the professional game and,
although the early years seemed a continuous struggle, honours were
eventually to arrive.
The two outstanding sides that evolved either side of the First World
War and secured the FA Cup in 1914 and the League Championship in
1920/21 (with a record of 30 consecutive games undefeated) are covered
in detail. Other areas of particular interest include the relegation of 1930,
promotion back to the top flight in 1947, the club’s first ever trip to
Wembley and the glory days of the 1960s - with the memorable European
Cup campaign, another League Championship and a very near miss in
the quest for the ‘double’. '
This superb selection of images from Burnley’s past is supported with
expert captions from Ray Simpson, the club’s official historian and
statistician, who has already published several books on the club. This
pictorial history is a splendid archive of a big club from a small Lancashire
town and will delight all Clarets fans ~ whether as a reminder of happy
times in the past or a fascinating glimpse into the way things used to be.
