Clarets Trust Honour Barry Kilby

23 June 2015

The Clarets Trust has presented honorary life membership to former Burnley FC chairman Barry Kilby in recognition of his contribution to the club.

Mr Kilby, who was Chairman between 1999-2012 and remains a director, was also presented with two inscribed whiskey glasses by members of the trust.

The presentation at Turf Moor was attended by Terry Hephrun and Jane Pike, both Trust Board members, and Peter Pike, Chair of the Trust.

Mr Pike said: “Frank Teasdale kept the club alive during the most difficult period in its history. Barry then injected money into the club and took on the post of Chairman, which had effectively seen a rebirth of the club.

“Promotion then followed and ultimately, after 33 years, a place in the Premier League for the first time.

“Four years later we have just enjoyed a second spell in the top flight and a record of achievement over the past few years the envy of many other clubs.

“Despite relegation, we really have had an outstanding season and there is belief among the fans that we can get back into the top league again.

“Thanks Barry for all you have done for the Clarets”
