'The Complete Clarets Collection' Signing at Clarets Store

19 December 2018

The Clarets Store at Turf Moor will be open till 8pm tonight (Thursday 20th) for late night Christmas shopping.

Also at the Clarets Store at Turf Moor tomorrow, Ray Simpson and Wallace Chadwick will be signing copies of their recently published 'The Complete Clarets Collection'.

The authors will be in store from 4.30pm - 6.30pm, so make sure you pop down to get your copy signed. 

The Complete Clarets Collection, 1882 - 2018, is a comprehensive who’s who of Burnley Football Club, written by Ray Simpson and Wallace Chadwick.

This new book provides a detailed profile of every player who has appeared in a senior first-team game for Burnley Football Club since the club’s formation in 1882. 

It is an extended version of “The Clarets Collection” and updates the careers of every player who appeared in that book. 

It also features over 200 additional players who have made their debuts for Burnley since 1996, when “The Clarets Collection” was published.

Also included are full details of the hundreds of players who appeared for the club before the Second World War. This period, of course, takes in the first Golden Era at Turf Moor, including Burnley’s FA Cup triumph in 1914 and first Football League title in 1921, when several Turf Moor legends such as Jerry Dawson, Tommy Boyle, Bob Kelly and Bert Freeman graced this famous ground.

In total, more than 1,000 players are featured, together with every manager who has occupied the Turf Moor hot seat.
