Philliskirk extends Turf Moor stay
On 7th December last year, Burnley Football Club confirmed the appointment of Tony Philliskirk as the new head coach of the u18s following the departure of Danny Cadamarteri.
There was no suggestion that, at the time, this was anything but a permanent appointment but it turns out that the former Clarets’ striker, who had recently left Oldham after twenty years service, was only on an interim deal until the end of this season.
However, after impressing in the role, the club have confirmed today that the deal has now been made permanent. He said: “I took the call last week asking me if I would like to make the contract permanent, which obviously had a very simple answer. I’ve absolutely loved it since I’ve been here, it’s been fantastic.
“After spending 20 years at Oldham Athletic, and then coming to somewhere like this with all the infrastructure, all the players and working closely with John Townson, Steve Stone and Andy Farrell has been great for me. I might be 54 years of age but I’m still learning every day. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it so far and it’s been a privilege to come here and work and I’m delighted to stay.”Share this page :
