Replica Shirts Needed for 'Turf' Feature

10 November 2016

As part of our Kitted Out item in the 'Turf' match-day programme, we are on the look-out for a number of replica strips to feature in up-coming editions.

Each time, we take a look back at a classic kit worn at some point in the Clarets’ history, telling the story around it and choosing a key Burnley game where it was used.

We are currently looking to borrow three replica shirts from two important decades in Burnley’s history, which we would photograph and return to the owner.

We would like an example of the green and black halved shirt worn in the 1993/94 season, the 1998/99 blue and amber away kit and the ‘500’ miles shirt (shown being worn above by on-loan defender Gary Cahill) which was a special one-off for the Clarets’ home game against Brighton in April, 2005.

The green and black away version of the shirt may not have been one of Burnley’s most popular – or lucky ones – although it did feature in a promotion-winning campaign.

The amber and blue design represented a change of direction - both fashionably and football-wise - as the season it was worn was the first under the management of Stan Ternent as he kick-started a revival in the Clarets’ fortunes.

And the ‘500’ miles home shirt was a unique design, worn only once and carrying the imprinted names of supporters who pledged funds to help the Clarets through a testing financial time.   

If you are able to help by offering a shirt to be photographed, please contact designer Adam Riding on a.riding@burnleyfc.com
