Happy New Year from Vital Burnley!

Happy New Year from Vital Burnley!

Happy New Year to one and all and let's hope 2011 is a great year for all Clarets fans.After a turbulent last few days we can now look forward to 2011 with renewed vigour!

2010 was not the happiest year for Clarets fans it has to be said. Relegation after just one season in the top flight followed by a mediocre performance in the Championship culminating in the sacking of a manager might not have been on our 2010 wish-list.

But stuff 2010, we have turned a corner and we can now move forward under new management with renewed hope. All is not lost yet, in 10th place just two points off a play-offs spot, if we can start to put a run together with a team motivated by a new gaffer at the helm.who knows what our fate will be.

Whoever the new manager might be, let's get behind him from Day 1 and make this year a Claret one!

Finally, I would once more like to thank all our posters and users for continuing to use Vital Burnley and support our 'Hit the Site, Help the Club' campaign.

We announced recently we had now raised a total of £2000 which the site has donated to Clarets Trust to buy 10 shares in Burnley Football Club.

You may have seen some recent publicity about this achievement in the Leeds United 'Claret & You'. It was featured on Page 9 under the title 'Vital Funds Raised'

The article read:

Vital Burnley, an independent fans' website,has raised £2000 from their 'Hit the Site, Help the Club' campaign.

This money has been donated to the Clarets Trust to purchase 10 shares in Burnley Football Club.

Clarets Trust chairman, Peter Pike said:

'The support from Vital Burnley is very welcome in increasing the Clarets Trust stake in our club,

'A sronger voice for the fans is an aim all fans of the Clarets should support and endorse'

Burnley FC Chairman, Barry Kilby added:

'We thank the Trust for again showing their support. Investing in shares shows a real commitment and we are delighted to have a good partnership with the Trust and its members'

Phil Lea,the Vital Burnley editor, is also a Clarets Trust Board member and started the 'Hit the Site, Help the Club' campaign two years ago in partnership with 'When the Ball Moves' fanzine editor and Trust Membership Secretary, Martin Barnes.

Phil said:

'All our site users have to do,at no cost to themselves,is read our articles and/or post in our forums,

'I'm delighted the campaign has been so successful and look forward to raising even more money in the future'


Watch our for similar messages soon on the Official Burnley FC website and in the local press.

It would be really,really great if you could now help us get up to the next level by inviting all your Clarets chums to Vital Burnley, spreading the word and making our community even greater.

Happy New Year

Phil
