Clarets to pay tribute to Noble this weekend
Peter Noble will be very much in the thoughts of Burnley fans this weekend as the 2016/17 season comes to an end.
Noble, or Uwe to Burnley fans, sadly passed away a week last Saturday after a long illness. Tributes poured in on the message board and elsewhere for a player who gave the club outstanding service and a man who became a friend to so many through his sports shop in the market hall.
On the message board, Claretnick wrote: “Oh no what sad news. A fantastic footballer and gentleman off the field,” while claret3561 added: “Such terrible news on such a momentous day for the Clarets.”
Bedfordsdad wrote: “I am saddened to hear this news. For me Noble epitomised what it takes to be an iconic Burnley player, reliable, hard working and a willingness to play anywhere for the cause. A true legend.”
Two posters have usernames in tribute to their favourite player. Uwe Noble wrote: “My hero,” while Noble Peter added: “Rest in peace old lad you did us proud, Uwe, Uwe, Uwe. A 55 year old Claret in tears.”
Tomorrow and then on Sunday will give us all an opportunity to pay our respects. At approximately 1:30 p.m. tomorrow afternoon the funeral cortege will pass his beloved Turf Moor as it makes its way from the service in Worsthorne to the crematorium. Many Burnley fans are expected to be outside the ground to pay their respects.
On Sunday, the current players will show their respect by wearing black armbands for the West Ham game which will be preceded by a minute’s applause.
Please have his family in your thoughts, his wife Jenny, daughters Tracey and Nicola, sons-in-law Chris and Nick, grandchildren Jack, Jessica and Teddy and his first great grandchild Oscar.
Rest in peace UweFollow UpTheClarets:
