Burnley players who had footballer relatives

Post by ClaretTony » Sun May 10, 2020 6:00 pm

How many Burnley players, past or present, who had relatives who also played league football. Their relatives don’t have to have played for Burnley.

Some obvious ones but I’ll start with:

Colin Waldron - brother Alan played for Bolton

I can’t remember their names, but I’m sure Joey Gudjonsson had a few relatives in the game?
