It is fifteen years ago today

Last updated : 09 May 2002 By Tony Scholes

Today on the fifteenth anniversary we launch The Orient Game and it can be found in the new Clarets History section of the site.

Today it includes all the memories you have sent in, the match reports from our two local papers the Burnley Express and the Lancashire Evening Telegraph. Before that we have an introduction and the whole feature has been dedicated to a Clarets' fan for whom the Orient game proved to be his last visit to Turf Moor for a league game. Check it all out in The Orient Game

The feature will continue to grow as we feature more from the press, more of Your Views as they arrive so don't forget to send them in to us. We hope too to get the views of those that were more closely involved but for now just remember this day of fifteen years ago. Where we would have been now had things not worked out are too frightening to think about.

To add to today's new feature Oldroyd's Turf also looks back to the day in 1987 in an article entitled Never Forget and this is in the Clarets Columns section.
