Season Ticket Prices Frozen for 2011-12

It has been announced that Burnley Football Club have frozen season ticket prices for the 2011-12 season to 'Early Bird' buyers.

Clarets fans have until March 31 to take advantage of the special offer before sales are then suspended and prices potentially increased once the current season is over in May.

Full details will follow on Vital Burnley.

Cardiff Fixture Change

The last game of the season is normally played on a Sunday and it looked like it would be the same again this season with the Clarets due to play Cardiff City at Turf Moor on Sunday 8th May.

However the Football League have decided following discussions with both Sky Sports and the BBC that ALL Championship games will now be brought forward a day and will be played instead on Saturday 7th May. Our game against the Bluebirds will also kick-off early at 12:45pm in line with the other fixtures.

New Trialist on Show in Reserve Game

Burnley Reserves fought out a dull 0-0 draw in midweek at Shrewsbury but we did have a new face on show. Shaun Williams, a trialist lined up for the Clarets in midfield. Williams is the current Irish PFA young player of the year but is currently without a club.

He played for Sporting Fingal until recently but they have now withdrawn from the Irish league because of financial problems earlier this month. Fingal back in January rejected a bid from Celtic for the 24 year old and the £70,000 believed to have been offered could in hindsight have gone some way to making their financial plight less severe.

Celtic are understood to still be interested and it is thought that both Irish clubs, Shamrock and Bohemians are also keen to sign the impressive central midfielder. Eddie Howe took the opportunity this week to see at firsthand how good the player actually is but it now remains to be seen if he made enough impression for Howe to follow up further.

Burnley X-Files: Jordan on Move Again

Former Clarets left-back, Stephen Jordan has left Sheffield United for League 1 club, Huddersfield after agreeing a one month emergency loan deal. He made his debut for the Terriers at home to Leyton Orient at the Galpharm Stadium last Saturday playing the full 90 minutes. Huddersfield Town though lost a two goal lead after Orient scored twice in the last 17 minutes of the match to earn a point in a 2-2 draw. The 28 year old defender speaking to the Huddersfield Examiner said after the game:

"This squad is good enough to go up, no doubt about it, and I want to do what I can to help.

"It`s been turbulent at Sheffield United this season and the manager (Micky Adams) told me he was making me available for loan, so it`s great to feel wanted here at Huddersfield."

Jordan has struggled this season to make an impression for the Blades and until recently had been out of the side for two-and-a-half months although struggling manager, Micky Adams did decide to play him a couple of times before agreeing to the loan deal.

Burnley released Jordan at the end of the 2009-10 season and he left Turf Moor in May 2010 before signing for the Blades later that summer.

Jordan will at least recognise one face at the Galpharm with former Clarets midfielder, Joey Gudjonsson now plying his trade for the Terriers.
