It was party time yesterday at Turf Moor, as over 200 Junior Clarets members and their families came to the football club to enjoy their very own Christmas party, courtesy of Burnley FC in the Community.
From 4pm – 6pm, the James Hargreaves Suite was transformed into a festive celebration, with a DJ and disco, party games, party food and a tombola.
However, the real Christmas treat for the young party-goers was a chance to meet the entire 1st team squad, and Burnley FC Manager, Sean Dyche.
Clarets stars including team captain Tom Heaton, Andre Gray, George Boyd and Joey Barton spent time chatting with Junior Clarets members, signing items and stopping for photos.
Burnley FC’s legendary mascot Bertie Bee was also in attendance, as were the entire Community department staff.
