Deadline Approaches for Club's 'In Memoriam'

Deadline Approaches for Club's 'In Memoriam'

Vital Burnley received an 'In Memoriam' press release from the club recently asking if we could bring it to the attention of our readers. We were of course delighted to help. Should you wish to join the club in remembering members of the Clarets` family who sadly passed away last year, we remind supporters that the deadline is next week on Wednesday 9th January. Details are again provided below.

********************************************************

Burnley Football Club would like to invite supporters to join the club in remembering members of the Clarets` family who have sadly passed away in the past year.

Following a proposal by the Supporters` Liaison Group (SLG), the club has designated the first game of the calendar year as an appropriate time to hold a one-minute silence in memory of loved ones.

The first 'In Memoriam` will therefore take place ahead of the Burnley v Crystal Palace game at Turf Moor on Saturday, January 12, 2013.

The SLG, comprising of senior club staff, supporters` club members and representatives from the Clarets Trust, hereby invite supporters to submit the names of anyone who has passed away in 2012 and who you would like to be remembered in this moment of reflection.

All names we receive will be added to the former players and staff who have passed away and displayed on the big screen ahead of the Palace game.

All names will also appear in the edition of the matchday magazine, Claret & You that accompanies the game.

Please e-mail the name, age and hometown of the person you would like to be included to info@burnleyfc.com

The deadline for names to be received is Wednesday, January 9, 2013.

On behalf of all senior staff, management and the supporters of Burnley Football Club, we would like to pass on our sincere condolences for your loss.
