We reach the new Millennium
This week we’ve added the results, league tables and programme covers for a further five years taking us into the 21st Century with seasons 1995/96 through to 1999/2000.
The previous five years had seen us win two promotions and then suffer a relegation that left us going into 1995/96 back in Division Two (now League One). Three times during the next five years we were close to going down again but ended the period with a further promotion to take is back into Division One (now the Championship).
Steve Davis and John Mullin both left the club in 1995 but both were back before the next five years had been completed. Alongside them there were 57 league debutants, the most in any five year period.
Three of those debutants went on to pass 200 league appearances for Burnley. Graham Branch leads the way with 264 followed by Paul Weller and Glen Little who made 252 and 246 league appearances respectively. A further six players reached three figures; they were Andy Cooke (171), Dean West (158), Andy Payton (156), Paul Cook (147), Ian Cox (115) and Gordon Armstrong (105).
The full list of debutants in seasons 1995/96 to 1999/2000 are: Peter Swan, Andy Cooke, John Borland, Paul McDonald, Paul Weller, Derek Adams, Ian Helliwell, Charlie Bishop, Paul Mahorn, Nigel Gleghorn, Damian Matthew, Paul Barnes, Doug Hodgson, Glen Little, Richard Huxford, Steve Guinan, Steve Blatherwick, Phil Eastwood, Mark Ford, Chris Waddle, Michael Williams, Lee Howey, Ian Duerden, Neil Moore, Andy Kiwomya, Carl Smith, Gerry Creaney, Gordon Cowans, Colin Carr-Lowton, Andy Payton, Mark Robertson, Kevin Henderson, Chris Woods, Paul Crichton, Ronnie Jepson, Steve Morgan, Gavin Ward, Matt Heywood, Chris Scott, Gordon Armstrong, Brian Reid, Rune Vindheim, Brad Maylett, John O’Kane, Matt Hewlett, Ally Pickering, Graham Branch, Micky Mellon, Lenny Johnrose, Paul Cook, Tom Cowan, John Williamson, Alan Lee, Mitchell Thomas, Dean West, Ian Cox and Ian Wright.
Jimmy Mullen was manager when the 1995/96 season started but by the time we were kicking off the 1998/99 season he’d gone as had his successors Adrian Heath and Chris Waddle. Stan Ternent was manager for the final two seasons and was in charge as the Clarets went into the new Millennium.
The League Tables from 1995/96 to 1999/2000 are all now available and in the drop down menu as are all the Results for the same seasons. These results for these seasons, like those from the earlier post war years, also carry the names of the opposition goalscorers.Follow UpTheClarets:
