Burnley FC Co-chairman, John Banaszkiewicz and Mike Garlick have issued the following joint-statement following the club’s promotion to the Premier League:

“On behalf of the Board of Directors, we would like to express our thanks and congratulations to everyone at the club for a remarkable and historic season.

“Special thanks are, of course, due to the team and Sean Dyche, who have performed beyond expectations to take us back into the Premiership.

“For those of us on the board, this season has been as much of a rollercoaster as it has been for the fans and the town, albeit one with more highs than lows.

“But knowing that we will spend next season playing among England’s biggest footballing names is the best end to the season we could have hoped for.

“Promotion is also testament to the core values that we share at Turf Moor.

“We are a club built on passion, belief and the understanding that without our fans and the community, we are nothing.

“Monday’s performance showed us that when we work together, we don’t have to dream; we can turn those dreams into reality.”
