Following months of planning and the overcoming of serious building foundation problems, the Clarets' new fans' retail store is now officially open for business.

England shot stopper Tom Heaton obliged with the ceremonial scissors and officially declared the store open. Long lines of eager Burnley supporters could be seen "early doors" awaiting the store opening.

The store is an integral part of an infrastructure overhaul at Turf Moor in preparation for the Clarets' return to the top flight of English football.

New state of the art floodlights have been installed to comply with the rigourous demands of media and television coverage of live games beamed globally from Turf Moor.

The Barnfield Training centre down at Gawthorpe has also been the subject of heavy financial investment as the Clarets continue to look the part in the English Premier League.

Potential first team incomers like Jon Flanagan, Hakim Ziyech, Paddy McNair and Jeff Hendrick will certainly not feel out of place at a reinvigorated Turf Moor. (TEC).
