'If It's Football, It's Vital'

We can Win Summat !

The Clarets beat off all the competition to win the Best Kit Design Award for their away kit at the 2007 'Football League Awards incorporating FourFourTwo's Top 50 Football League Players'.

Burnley FC were up for the award with Huddersfield Town, Hull City, Norwich City, Milton Keynes Dons and Mansfield Town.

The club received the award at a gala dinner at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Sunday, 4th March 2007.

The yellow strip which does have mixed feelings amongst the fans was judged to be a good use of colour with innovative use of the Claret chest band which quote 'created a striking design.'

Chief Executive Dave Edmundson is quoted as saying:

'I'm delighted to have got this award - the kit's been a bit of a lucky omen for us. The manager had some input into it as did our kit suppliers Errea, who worked with us throughout the kit design and they've been a fantastic help.

' Steve Cotterill wanted something very distinctive and the players certainly feel that the kit is emblematic. It's also been a bit lucky because we've done well away from home this season and hopefully will continue to do so.'

If you want to see the award ceremony, highlights will be on Sky Sports 1 at 6.30pm on Thursday 8th March.
