Fans Flock To Book Launch

Former players back 'Complete Clarets Collection 1882 - 2018'

25 October 2018

Fans flocked to Turf Moor on Wednesday evening to be the first to get their hands on the new must-have book.

The Complete Clarets Collection 1882 - 2018 pulls together, for the first time, a complete who’s who of Burnley Football Club, including detailed bios, appearances and goals for every player who has ever featured for the club, and profiles of every manager.

Co-authors Ray Simpson and Wallace Chadwick, who have spent six years painstakingly piecing together the book, hosted a special launch where subscribers were handed their books for the first time ahead of general sale.

They were joined by Clarets legends from yesteryear, including Willie Irvine, Steve Kindon, Colin McDonald, Jimmy Robson and Les Latcham (pictured L-R, above).

Robson said: "It's a fantastic piece of research to pull together every player to have pulled on the shirt and I'm sure fans will enjoy a long trip down memory lane."

The hardback version of The Complete Clarets Collection 1882-2018, priced at £32, now joins the growing list of club books in the Clarets Store.
