With the Burnley fans playing a respectful role in our home games of the last 2 seasons which each time recognised the loss of Khun Vichai, yesterday was an opportunity to show our respects
Tony Scholes, representing the Burnley FC Supporters Groups, sent the following message today
“Yesterday it was our turn for a minute’s silence at a game against Leicester, our annual in memoriam. We’ve been doing it now since January 2013 and on a couple of occasions, against Sheffield Wednesday and Manchester United, the visiting fans have disrupted it.
The whole thing was very poignant for me personally yesterday. One of my best football friends passed away two days before the game after battling motor neurone disease for two years and he was in the forefront of my mind.
This annual event, if event is the right word to use, was instigated by Burnley FC Supporters Groups, and the reason for the email is to say a big thanks to all the Leicester supporters there yesterday who were impeccable in observing the minute’s silence.
Could you possibly pass this on to your various supporters organisations as to how thankful we were to your fans for helping us remember those involved with our club who have passed away in the last year.
Thanks so much,”
