'Orient Game': Memories Wanted

22 April 2013

Throughout the 2013/14 season, Claret & You has been celebrating 130 years of football at Turf Moor.

We’ve featured many fans’ individual memories – and for our last edition of the season we want YOUR memories of perhaps the most important game played here.
May 9, 1987 was the fateful date, when Orient arrived at Turf Moor with the Clarets fighting for their very survival as a Football League club.
The rest, of course, is history.

But in a special feature to close our popular feature, we want you to provide your own personal memories of that nerve-jangling afternoon.
Turf Moor Memories (300 words max please) can be e-mailed to

You can also tweet to @burnleyofficial (please use hashtag #OrientGame), or Facebook at

We will look to feature as many as possible in the final edition of Claret & You v Ipswich Town on Saturday, May 4
