Burnley unveil centenary shirt

This Is Lancashire: Danny Ings models the centenary shirt Danny Ings models the centenary shirt

BURNLEY have released images of a special centenary shirt to be worn during Saturday’s home game against Ipswich Town.

Danny Ings models the shirt that will be donned at the weekend to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the club’s triumph in the 1914 FA Cup final.

The Clarets won the world’s most prestigious cup competition after defeating Liverpool 1-0 at the Crystal Palace Grounds, courtesy of Bert Freeman’s goal.

The match was the first occasion that a reigning monarch, King George V, had attended an FA Cup final.

To celebrate that triumph, and in conjunction with the 1914 exhibition currently on display at Towneley Hall, the specially commissioned claret and blue shirt will feature the Royal Coat of Arms instead of the usual club crest. Permission was sought from Buckingham Palace for the club to use this special crest.

The names of manager John Haworth and the squad from that 1914 triumph are also commemorated on the shirt in a special panel embroidered in the bottom left hand corner of the shirt.

The shirts will not go on general sale to the public, because of the use of the Royal Crest, but the club will be hosting an auction for each shirt on their official website next week.

Oh yes, and how many penalty points will you be receiving for your overspending (that got you precisely nowhere!)?

It's not the celebrating the last time we won any cup, just the FA Cup.

Blackburn last won it in 1928. 14 years isn't a lot from a time when a Sunday League club could have probably won it. Think before you make a fool of yourself.

Hi Keen, no it isn't. Its's the date you lot last won the title before the injection of Jack's dosh in the 1990's. You went 81 years before you won it again in 1995. In that time we won it twice, finished in the top 3 more often than you and spent more years in the top flight than you. Those were the days of the fixed wage in football and everyone had to make do from what they generated from the running of the club. You lot were utterly naff at that.

I hope that helps to answer your question.

Hi Maaaark, in the period between 1928 and when you won the title in 1995, a span of 81 years, we won the title twice. You didn't win it at all in that 81 year period. You didn't win the FA Cup either. We also had more top 3 finishes than you and spent more years in the top flight than you did. When it was even-stevens with access to only money your club generates, we won stuff, you didn't win a thing.

And that's where we finally find ourselves today. We are in the top flight through direct promotion using our own resources. You are in the Championship. The normal order has been restored.

Hi Epicurean, The six FA Cups you won between 1888 and 1928, plus the two titles you won between 1888 and 1914 are an absolute an utter credit to Blackburn Rovers. Well done Rovers. You won that lot in a 40 year period. You achieved that using your own internal resources as club. An utter credit to you.

In the 86 years since 1928 you've not won the FA Cup. You won the title in 1914. In the 81 years between that title and 1995, you never won that trophy.

When it comes to using your own internal resources with no help pumped in, you had 40 great years and 81 empty years.

Burnley have always relied on its own resources. in the period 1914 to 1960, 46 years, they won the title twice and the FA Cup. They also enjoyed a total of 55 years top flight football (from 1888 to 1976), three cup finals, 6 top-three finishes and a quarter final appearance in the European Cup.

Forgive me please if I don't include the Premiership and the League Cup. You won those with someone else's money, not your own.

Thanks for your kind compliments Rob. Even with your debatable competitive guidelines we still show a superior trophy haul. By the same token, should Real Madrid's 9 European cups be erased from the record books? We may have had added resources granted, but WE WON those competitions and therein lies the difference between our two clubs. Winners and whingers.

Real Madrid's haul erased? I'm sure that Platinini would be upset to mention such a notion! If there were a Royal London FC with 9 he would be campaign like nothing on earth to get them struck off! To answer your question, frankly, yes!

Please note that I'm not critical whatsoever of the 8 trophies earned (please note the use of the present-tense subjunctive). Wonderful achievement. Back in those days your club was a proven winner. The more recent two damaged football. As do Chelsea, Man City, and Bournemouth for example.

Praising you is not whinging.
