Open Letter to Fans from John B!

Open Letter To Fans, From Burnley FC Co-Chairman John Banaszkiewicz

Dear Clarets fans,

On behalf of myself, co-chairman Mike Garlick and the Burnley FC Board of Directors, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for such great support so far this season.

I think we all recognise that the club is enjoying a fabulous season.

And as we enter the final few months, and with your unstinting support, we`re ready for one last push.

Sean and the players are treating us to some of the best entertainment we have seen in years and with some big games still to come, we want to encourage as many fans as possible to come along and make their voices heard.

Our average home attendance currently stands at just around 11,500 and our travelling support is around 1,500; figures we can all be proud of in these times of austerity.

Can we do better? I think we can and I think we need to do better when we look at who we are going to be playing as we come into the home stretch of the season sitting in second place.

Promotion-chasing rivals Nottingham Forest, Derby, Leicester and Leeds United are all big games for the club and a big crowd in full voice makes a massive contribution to the atmosphere and in supporting the players.

Put simply, we need to compete off the pitch and put in a big performance to match the way we play.

We fully understand that a regular commitment to the club is a big deal for supporters who have tough choices to make about what they spend their hard-earned money on.

Our prices are already competitive, but to encourage fans to get involved when they can, we have developed the Flexi-ticket scheme.

Flexi-tickets mean that for a commitment of between four and six games, we will reward you with admission prices that can equate to just over £20 per game.

Not only that, but you can share Flexi-tickets with family or friends, making this a really viable option where a season ticket wouldn`t quite fit with pocket or lifestyle.

We also have direct debit schemes available on all season tickets, to further help spread the load.

Whether you take advantage of a Flexi-ticket or you commit to one game at a time, then I can assure you the warm welcome will be just the same.

But if there is a time to get involved and make your voice heard, I can think of no better time than this.

This is Our Town, Our Turf and Our Time: Got To Be There!

Up the Clarets!

John Banaszkiewicz

I have to admit to having aired some scepticism about the appointment of Co-Chairs when it was announced, and recall hunting around largely in vain for other senior footy job shares that had worked. But, as things stand today, the impression I get is of an organisation being very well run, with everyone from top to bottom playing their part as well as the team on the Turf is doing. Having spoken with him briefly, and having read the interviews with him in wtbm, I reckon Lee Hoos is playing a big part in that (alongside Sean Dyche, of course). If so, is part of the current success, down to the Board appointing a hands-on CE with plenty of experience in footballing negotiations, and letting them get on with it, while keeping a careful eye and giving lots of support? Both SD and LH seem very people-focussed and team-focussed, and neither seem given to flights of fancy. Is that just coincidence, or part of Plan GB?
