Adam Blacklaw: The Burnley legend who went to Aberdeen’s Frederick Street School

 The family of a Burnley legend said the Clarets’ Europa League tie with Aberdeen would have been his “dream game”.

 Aberdonian goalkeeper Adam Blacklaw was an idol at Turf Moor.

 He joined the Lancashire club in 1954 when he left the Granite City’s Frederick Street School.

 After making his debut as a 19-year-old in 1956 Adam went on to establish himself as Burnley’s first choice goalie.

 He helped the Clarets win their only First Division title in the 1959-60 season.

 Adam was also between the sticks in Burnley’s two previous European campaigns.

 In 1960-61 they reached the European Cup quarter-final and in 1966-67 they made it to the last-eight of the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup.

 In the summer of 1967 Adam moved to Lancashire rivals Blackburn Rovers and then onto Blackpool in 1970.

 He also won three caps for Scotland between 1963 and 1965.

 Adam died in February 2010 at the age of 72, but ahead of Thursday’s European tie between the club he served with such distinction and his home town team his wife Sheila and son Craig have been speaking to the Evening Express.

I used to mate out with his son Craig some years ago and had the pleasure of being in the company of his father on many occasions..
Adam was the most pleasurable bloke anyone could wish to meet.
