Simply ask the Border Police for border crossing numbers differential on Match day and non Match day...

Anyone not on the West Yorkshire Clarets mailing list who wants to be, email: wyclarets at gmail dot com

We meet monthly across the county including a summer walk, the odd curry, plenty of beers and laughs and representation at the supporters' club awards evening.

Join us!

All my family. As I like to say quite often, who was the last person to lead Burnley out in a Premier League fixture? Answer: My son. He was mascot in the Spurs game and led them out with Caldwell - a fantastic day! It's great living near Leeds. In fact at school my eldest has been called a glory supporter by Leeds fans for following Burnley. Absolutely fantastic I couldn't stop laughing. He is now recruiting more fans, they have claret numbers and enjoy coming over too. So there tomorrow and full family trip out for next home match. Left Lancashire couple of decades ago but can never leave Burnley FC.

How many Leeds in burley? Not sure if there was a supporters club pre Bates in Burnley, plenty in the rest of Lancs.

Good luck tomorrow.

not from yorkshire but lived here for ten years now.

the only things that make it bearable are keeley donovan and amy garcia.

If you red rosers really knew how many on Turf had come over via Laneshawbridge/Colne...;D

Lived in Crosshills for years, used to watch a procession of cars with Claret scarves/stickers gong up Station Road, finished my tea and joined them. Moved to Foulridge near Colne then joined the stream through Valley Road onto the M65 and off down Princess Way(?):D

Now in North Devon, stopped looking for Claret scarves on Sat lunchtime now...:blue:

You're all seriously feeding the Blackburn troll? Jeez... :D

17-08-2014, 09:18 PM
feeding the troll would entail getting all upset and defensive.

and then employing smileys.

17-08-2014, 09:24 PM
I grew up in Nelson, Brierfield and Burnley (in that order) but live between Harrogate & Leeds now. Like others have said there is a regular stream of Clarets traffic after every match that passes through Crosshills, Skipton, Ilkley & Otley.

More sheep lovers the better. They can scrap.

17-08-2014, 09:39 PM
Another Yorky here :D
Burnley is the closest professional team to where I live.

Oh,and I found this taken at Bellend Rd.

17-08-2014, 09:54 PM
Hundreds from Keighley,Silsden,and south craven thats a fact.

17-08-2014, 10:01 PM
And Skipton...not to mention the Todd"s...;D

18-08-2014, 05:57 AM
Not a troll. Burnley fan since the 70's . Burnley were the biggest team around Skipton and have always been a rival to Leeds, Blackburn never got a look in.

18-08-2014, 08:28 AM
Hebden Bridge born and bred (there have always been a large number of clarets in the calder valley). Now reside near Barnsley south Yorks...always a few clarets cars spotted on my journey back home (suspect Leeds based or further afield!)

18-08-2014, 08:40 AM
I would say the Clarets predominate in Skipton, it would be close between Bradford City and Leeds.
Always puzzles me why Skipton has no football team to speak of. Silsden, whilst considerably smaller, play in the North West Counties (same division as Colne, Barlick and Nelson). Harrogate (whilst not exactly a football area ?) has two teams at a decent level, Guiseley missed out on a place in the National Conference in their play off final last season...the list goes on.

18-08-2014, 01:03 PM
I'm originally from Skipton,and am a lifelong Claret.

I know many other Skiptonian Clarets as well.

Lots of Leeds fans in Skipton, surprisingly few Bradford City fans, and then the usual followers of Man Utd, Liverpool, etc.

18-08-2014, 01:07 PM
I'll be driving over from work in York tonight, and live in Leeds. Definitely not from Yorkshire though.

18-08-2014, 01:23 PM
Born Yorkshire. Bred Yorkshire. Love Yorkshire.

Burnley fan.

18-08-2014, 02:35 PM
Am reading you at Scaboro watching Yorks v Sussex, Halifax born but Tod and Littleboro lad.

18-08-2014, 02:48 PM
Lancastrian in exile here..Leeds are just 20 minutes down the road but the only times I've been on in the last 50 years is when they have played us .Try to make it to TM as often as poss

Only missed 2 home games last year.

Setting off in about half an hour..stomach is totally screwed up !!!!!


18-08-2014, 03:40 PM
Two more here coming tonight, me near Boroughbridge and Pieman, from the Spa town of Harrogate, both Yorkshire born and bred.

18-08-2014, 03:46 PM
Harrogate is becoming quite a stronghold for the Burnley faithfull, setting off in 10 mins.

18-08-2014, 09:44 PM
There's me and t'lad for 2.

Then again I'm just an exile, born at Bank Hall (just down the corridor from Claret Tony).
