The London Clarets
Founded in 1976, the Burnley FC London Supporters Club (better known as the London Clarets) is the oldest independent Burnley FC Supporters Club.
With around 250 members, the Club's aims are to enable Burnley Supporters in the South of England to support their team, through a match ticket service, travel to games outside London, and social events before away games in the Capital. The Club also produces a bi-monthly magazine 'Something To Write Home About', usually 64 pages of comment, match reports, opinion and a fair bit of history too.
Membership is not restricted to those living in the South East, a number of members are from overseas, or are back in Lancashire having lived in the South East for a time.
The club is run by a Committee that meets at least 4 times a year, and holds an AGM each summer, to which all members are invited to have their say in how the club is run. The club's Honorary President is Peter Pike, who was the Member of Parliament for Burnley for many years.
We currently use a members-only Yahoo-based e-group to send information about tickets, travel and other items of general interest. On the social media side, we run Facebook and Twitter accounts, which by their nature are open to non-members as well.
The club is a member of the Association of Provincial Football Supporters Clubs in London (APFSCIL) and of the Football Supporters Federation
