A memorable week in May
On the morning of 2nd May this year we sat second in the Championship, just a point behind leaders Middlesbrough, who had played a game more, and above Brighton on goal difference. It was, we thought, going to be a tense week as we looked to secure promotion back to the Premier League just a year after suffering relegation.
By the time we kicked off against QPR we’d seen Brighton drop points against Derby and when the final whistle blew on our 1-0 win against the West London club we’d secured that much sought promotion with a game still to be played.
Five days later we won 3-0 at Charlton to clinch the title and on the following Monday received the trophy at the Town Hall to cap a memorable and wonderful week for everyone with an interest in Burnley Football Club.
Today, you can relive that week with three sets of photographs, one set for each of the three big occasions. They can be found within Promotion Week which is available from the top menu of the site.
Enjoy it all again as the Clarets became champions.
Up the Clarets are indebted to a number of message board posters for giving us kind permission to use their photographs, and we would like to thank all those below for making this feature on the site possible.
