Gallery: The Longside's Last Stand

16 September 2015

Burnley fans said their goodbyes to Turf Moor's famous Longside as today marks the 20th anniversary of the historic stand's final game.

The Clarets beat Hull City 2-1 that day, and a packed Longside witnessed Kurt Nogan's opener before a Neil Allison own goal sealed the victory.

Here is a selection of pictures from the old to the new as for the first time, Turf Moor became an all seater stadium.
