The Clarets Trust presented Honorary Life Membership to Barry Kilby at Turf Moor on Friday afternoon, the 19th of June. He was also presented with two inscribed whiskey glasses.
The presentation was attended by Terry Hephrun and Jane Pike, both Trust Board Members and Peter Pike, Chair of the Trust. Peter said this was a token of thanks for all Barry had done for Burnley Football Club.
Frank Teasdale had kept the club alive during the most difficult period in its history. Barry had then injected money into the club and taken on the post of Chairman which had effectively seen a rebirth of the Club.
Promotion had then followed and ultimately after 33 years a place in the Premier for the first time. Four years later a second spell in the Premier and a record of achievement over the past few years the envy of many other Clubs. Despite relegation, we really have had an outstanding season and belief amongst the fans that we can get back into the top league again.
Thanks Barry for all you have done for the Clarets
