Going North West for Two Further Friendlies!
The club have confirmed two further pre-season friendlies in July.
Burnley will travel to Morecambe`s Globe Arena on Tuesday, July 9 (7.45pm KO) and ticket details are still to be advised. This is actually our second visit to the League 2 club's relatively new stadium opened in August 2010. Nearly three years ago we beat the Shrimps 3-1 in the 1st round tie in the Carling Cup Our first friendly against the Shrimps came in 2009 when we won 3-1 at their former ground, Christie Park.
The Morecambe game will be followed by the recently announced trip to Cork involving a game against Cork City on Monday, July 15 (7pm KO).
After returning from Ireland, the Clarets will then play League One, Carlisle United at Brunton Park on Saturday, July 20 (3pm KO). Ticket details once again will be advised in due course. We last visited Brunton Park during the 1997/98 season. Chris Waddle was the Burnley gaffer at the time and we sadly lost 2-1.
As previously announced, Burnley will end their pre-season preparations with a home game against Sparta Rotterdam at Turf Moor on Saturday, July 27 (3.30pm KO).
Further friendlies, including a date and opponents for Brian Jensen`s testimonial are yet to be confirmed.
