We aim to allow pre publication subscribers to be able to collect their copies before the 11th from the club shop to enable them to bring them to the dinner for more signatures.

Details of the dinner will be publicised in the matchday programme, local Press and on the club website.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

This will be the sixth book by Dave Thomas

It`s Burnley Not Barcelona A diary of season 2002/03 a very small number of copies available from the author.

No Nay Never Volume One an anthology of Burnley writing, a very small number of copies available from the author.

Together Again The Willie Irvine Story, available from the author

Harry Potts Margaret`s Story Harry`s life and career, the Championship season, the Cup Final, much of it told through the eyes of his wife Margaret; available from the club shop.

Russians Don`t Land Here a diary of season 2006/07, the club record winless run, pen pictures of several players, features on Steve Cotterill, the chairman Barry Kilby, and director Ray Griffiths. Available from the author.

Dave now lives in Leeds but lived in Todmorden for his first 20 years. His first full season at Turf Moor was 1959/60, not a bad start. He was a teacher for over 30 years, running school football teams for most of those years, and 14 of those were as a Head. He now writes for fun; living proof that most football books make no money for their authors. Writing Burnley Football Club books is therefore, for him, a labour of love. He is bringing up his Leeds-based grandson to be a Claret and saving up for him to be a mascot.
