Burnley F.C.

From Academic Kids

Template:Football club infobox Burnley F.C. is a professional football club based in Burnley, in north-east Lancashire, England.

Nicknamed The Clarets due to their claret and blue strip, they have played at Turf Moor since 1883. They were founder members of The Football League in 1888, and are currently in the Football League Championship.

Burnley have been Football League Champions twice, in 1920-21 and 1959-60, and were FA Cup winners in 1914.

Modern times

Burnley are one of the most famous clubs to fall from greatness in the last few decades. They won the league championship in 1960 but have been outside the top division since the 1970s, and for seven seasons after 1985 they were in the Fourth Division. In 1991-92, they were crowned champions in the last ever season of the Fourth Division before the league re-organisation, and two years later they won the new Division Two playoffs and gained promotion to Division One, only to suffer relegation after just one season. In 1997-98 they narrowly escaped relegation into Division Three, but the appointment of Stan Ternent that summer saw the club's fortunes turned around. In 1999-2000 they finished Division Two runners-up and gained promotion to Division One, where they have remained since. In June 2004, Ternent's six-year reign as manager came to an end and since then Burnley have been managed by Steve Cotterill. Steve Cotterill's first year in charge ended with two cup runs, knocking out Premiership giants Liverpool and Aston Villa, and a 13th place finish in The Championship. The season gave football it's first real glance at Gary Cahill - a future England star, on loan at Turf Moor during the season.
