Colourful footballers from Burnley F.C.


September 29, 1900
The Burnley team are now playing in Lincoln Green. How many times have they changed their colours? First, they were the blue and white stripes, then claret and amber, then red, and now green. What’s the object of these changes? Surely they go far to destroy sentimental yet valuable attachment to the club?
