Jerry Dawson Cliviger Memorial Plaque Unveiling

Vital Burnley are delighted to be able to help promote an event in Cliviger in honour of Burnley goalkeeper, Jerry Dawson (1888-1970). A plaque will be unveiled on 12th November and Clarets fans are welcome to go along. The background and details are provided below by one of the event organisers, Eddy Rawlinson.



The children and four former members of Burnley Football club living in the village of Cliviger, where Burnley FC`s international goalkeeper Jerry Dawson was born, will honour his sporting achievements on Saturday 12th November 2011 when a blue plaque will be unveiled in his memory.

Jerry Dawson born in 1888 died in 1970 and lived all his life in Cliviger near Burnley despite having acclaimed fame both as a footballer and cricketer. His record still stands with Burnley Football Club for playing 569 senior matches of which 522 were league appearances. He kept goal and played in every match when Burnley made the long standing record of going 30 league matches without defeat which lasted for over 80 years (Only to be beaten in the 2003/4 season by Arsenal)

The four former first team players of which two went on to manage Burnley FC , now Cliviger residents, are Jimmy Robson, Frank Casper, Colin Waldron and Stan Ternent.

With people from Cliviger, Burnley football supporters will watch children who use the playing field, unveil the blue plaque on a wall of what will be known as the Jerry Dawson Pavilion.



A historic photograph of Jimmy Robson scoring Burnley`s goal at Wembley in the 1962 Cup Final signed by John Robson, John Connelly and Jimmy McIlroy will be raffled in aid of Fulledge Colts who now use Mount Lane as their home ground.

The unveiling takes place at mid-day on the 12th November at Mount Lane, Cliviger (Postcode ref. BB10 4TL) and visitors travelling by car are requested to make sure their vehicles are not obstructing the narrow lane alongside the ground and pavilion.
