Special Day in Burnley, Lancashire

Promotion to the Premier League is something I thought I’d never see in my lifetime. A small town club, albeit one of the founder members of the football league, competing against millionaire players at foreign-owned clubs with one of the smallest squads around.

Burnley did it in 2009 via the playoffs and did it in fine style this time going unbeaten at home for over a year in the process and having the best defensive record in the division. 

What will next season bring?
