PROLIFIC Burnley author Dave Thomas is planning his latest book about the Clarets.

Thomas has written 12 books about Burnley Football Club in 10 years and released a biography of ex-Clarets player and manager Jimmy Adamson in August.

Now he is working on his latest publication, which is set to be the Burnley Football Monthly Soccer Gift Book.

The book is based on Charles Buchan’s Football Monthly magazine and Football Monthly Soccer Gift Book of the 1950s and 1960s.

Thomas has gained permission to reproduce all the Burnley-related articles, features and pictures from those publications and is set to produce an A4 format gift book, in a similar style to his previous Jimmy McIlroy Scrapbook.

It will be a hardback book and will cost around £20.

The book will be funded by subscribers, who will each have their name listed within the publication. Thomas already has 150 but needs a minimum of 300 for the project to go ahead.

Sponsorship, which includes an advert within the book and free copies of the publication, is also available.

Packages go from £250 for a quarter page advert to £1,000 for a full page advert.

Anyone wanting to subscribe or offer sponsorship can contact Dave on 0113 255 5350 or via email at
