Dyche Climbs Into Top Five

9 October 2018

Sean Dyche’s has surpassed Stan Ternent to become the fifth longest serving manager in the club’s 136-year history.

The Clarets boss celebrates his sixth anniversary in the Turf Moor hot-seat later this month, during which time he has overseen two promotions to the Premier League, masterminded the Championship title success of 2016 and taken the club back into Europe for the first time in over 50 years.

And earlier this week, he surpassed Ternent’s successful reign, between 1998-2004, to become the second longest serving post-war manager, in terms of days in charge, since the late, great Harry Potts.

Still ahead of Dyche in the history books are Spen Whittaker (1903-1910), Albert Pickles (1925-1932), Potts (1958-70 & 1977-79) and John Haworth (1910-1924).

Dyche is also closing in on Clarets legend Brian Miller to become the fifth longest serving manager in history, in terms of games in charge.

The current Burnley boss has overseen 274 competitive games, with Miller currently fifth in the all-time list on 292.

Ternent is currently fourth with 312, behind Pickles (336), Haworth (464) and the granddaddy of them all, Potts, on 728.

Dyche celebrates six years in charge of the Clarets on October 30.
