How many Clarets players can you name that have earned an international cap whilst playing for Burnley FC? Well now you can find out at a glance.
Turf Moor has a brand new feature following the proud unveiling of an international honours board.
The board, featuring the 60 players who have earned a cap whilst playing for Burnley Football Club, sits in a prominent position in the main entrance of the Bob Lord Stand on Harry Potts Way.
Director of Youth Development Martin Dobson, the club`s last England international, proudly cut the ribbon on Tuesday afternoon, watched by Clarets boss Owen Coyle, some of the club`s current international stars and former illustrious internationals Adam Blacklaw, John Connelly, Willie Irvine and Jimmy McIlroy.
Dobson said: "There are some magnificent names on there and I am proud to be amongst them
"I think you could pick a really decent team out of that lot!
"When I arrived at Burnley all the talk was of Willie Irvine, Gordon Harris and John Angus and a very experienced, top-class First Division team.
"It`s come full circle in the past couple of years with the club back in the Premier League and some excellent internationals playing regularly at Turf Moor now under the inspirational guidance of an excellent manager in Owen Coyle."
Coyle added: "When I came on board I tried to embrace the history and tradition of this fantastic club and that involves a lot of past players who were top-class players and that`s been shown through the history of the football club.
"It`s nice that that`s recognised on the international board.
"Fans and everyone at the club are well aware of the names, but it`s nice to see them up there and it pays tremendous honour to the work they did at Burnley Football Club.
"It shows that we remember our present players and certainly don`t forget the ones that have served us well in the past.
"It`s nice that some of those former players were here today and the present group of players got to spend some time with them.
"It`s been a very good day for the football club."
The Burnley Express have also provided Vital Burnley with a video link to the unveiling ceremony. The footage also includes interviews with Jimmy Mac and Martin Dobson.
