Description

This is a tale of Burnley Football Club's incredible triumph told largely by those who took part. It concerns the Lazarus-like resurrection of this once-famous club which came perilously close to relegation to the Football Conference and liquidation in 1987, yet recovered to compete once more in the premier division of English football.
