Mike Garlick sees the club moving forwards at breakneck paceGood evening everyone and welcome back to Turf Moor.
Things are certainly hotting up nicely at the top end of the Championship table and it’s wonderful to see us right there in the mix.
Recent results have been hugely encouraging and it’s a rarity for us to be in such great form when season tickets go on sale! Normally, it’s the kiss of death for our league form!
But joking aside, we have been delighted at the early take-up for next season, with so much tantalisingly still at stake.
The offer of an interest free direct debit scheme, with payments spread over 12 months has been extremely successful, and understandably so.
The very nature of a direct debit, in line with your regular monthly outgoings, spreads the cost and makes things much more affordable to many people.
On behalf of the Board of Directors and myself, we thank you for your ongoing support and loyalty and if you are still contemplating a season ticket for next season, I hope Sean and the players are convincing you that it makes perfect sense!
I’d like to offer a warm welcome to our latest signing, Lloyd Dyer, who I am sure will fit right in with the players here and be a useful acquisition as we look to maintain our challenge.
Off the pitch, we also welcome the club’s new general manager, Matt Williams, who started his role this month after joining us from his former role as Chief executive at Shrewsbury Town.
Matt will work closely with our own CEO, David Baldwin and the senior management team at the club, to keep the club moving forwards behind the scenes.
The changing face of Burnley Football Club continues, of course, with the demolition of the old ticket office and Clarets Store, and we really won’t recognise the old place soon!
It’s strange to see a hole in the corner of the ground where the old red-brick building stood for so long. But it won’t be long before we have a new, improved provision in terms of retail and ticketing, which will be an altogether more enjoyable experience for supporters.
The new build follows the relocation of all office staff into their new offices on the first floor extension to the Bob Lord Stand,
And these, along with the vast changes taking place at the Barnfield Training Centre, are long overdue and a valuable legacy from our season in the Premier League.
It promises to be an exciting end to the season in many ways. Hang onto your hats!
Thanks for your support.
