Sad News about Albert Maddox

Albert was in the seat during our most successful period in the 1960s and 1970s and he will be greatly missed. All at Vital Burnley FC send their heartfelt condolences to Albert's family in these sad times.
More Apprentices signed up!
The Club announced the recruitment of 11 new apprentices this week.
Director Brendan Flood also confirmed there would be a strong emphasis on youth development this season with funding available for the next generation of local lads
'Youth wise, we've got to invest in youth.
'We've got to get a focus towards our youth improvement.
'I think that's all part of the studies we have been doing.'
The eleven youngsters include three central defenders, three central midfielders, a winger, striker, goalkeeper, full-back and left-back and they have all signed an initial two-year apprenticeship contract with the club.
The lads will now spend three-and-a-half days training and one-and-a-half days at college during the week. The games will involve Youth Alliance matches taking place on a Saturday and reserve matches in mid-week.
Head of youth development, Vince Overson, said: 'We're delighted to welcome the lads on board. They have all done exceptionally well and deserve the two year contracts because they have worked extremely hard to achieve their goal over the past few years and are a credit to their schools.
