8 August 2015

Tom Heaton has been confirmed as the new club captain for the 2015/16 Championship season.

The Clarets goalkeeper was officially handed the armband ahead of the opening game at Leeds, United and takes over from Jason Shackell, who departed Turf Moor in the summer.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche said: “Tom has had great growth in his time here. 

“He’s played every game, had a season in the Premier League and earned a call-up to the England squad, so he deserves it.

“However, we have plenty of leaders on the pitch and it’s up to everyone to play their part.”
