April 28, 1992, will forever be etched in the memory of Clarets fans.A 2-1 win at York City secured the Fourth Division championship andended seven long years in English football's basement edition

Now, 20 years on from that night in York, Burnley Former Players' Association are reuniting the men who made Clarets dreams come true.

All members of that triumphant 91/92 squad have been invited and many have already confirmed their attendance including goal heroes John Deary and John Francis, captain fantastic John Pender, goalkeeper Chris Pearce

 

and goal machine Roger Eli.

Frank Casper, who started the campaign as manager, and chairman Frank Teasdale will also be there on the night to celebrate a season which is rightly remembered as the year Burnley most definitely came back.rsz_book_cover_jpeg.jpg

Clarets legend Steve Kindon will be entertaining the crowd with tales of his Burnley career while there will also be a chance to hear from the squad themselves about that triumphant season, the mid-season trip to Russia and the time they welcomed European champions Ajax to Turf Moor.

And if that wasn't enough, former striker Eli will have copies of his new book - Thanks For The Memories, written with Clarets fan Dave Thomas - on sale.

Tickets, which include a delicious three-course meal, are priced at £25 each and are available from Veronica Simpson by calling 07974310099 or by emailing v.simpson@burnleyfc.com

Chris Pearce, how hard does George Oghani hit?

John Pender, Kevin Francis, how did you stop him?

"A truth’s initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. It wasn’t the world being round that agitated people, but that the world wasn’t flat. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic."
