Former Burnley midfielder Andy Farrell returned to Turf Moor to work in the club's community scheme and coach in the centre of excellence.
He was then taken onto the full-time staff three years ago as assistant to youth coach Terry Pashley.
The 'A' licence qualified coach is now a key part of the Clarets' youth set-up in helping lead the team in the Football League's North West Youth Alliance and nurture potential future professional players at Burnley.
Farrell's career began with hometown club Colchester United before he played over 300 games for the Clarets, becoming the only player in the club's history to appear in two Wembley finals and wear numbers one to 11 during his time at Turf Moor.
He then played for Wigan, Rochdale and Morecambe before launching his coaching career.
