I got myself a lovely claret n blue scarf after the first viewing of this picture about 2 years ago.

I'm sure I played football against the lad in the middle. I reckon they will all be about 70 by now?

Extreme right looks like Steven Rapson ? aka McGloo . Extreme left has a look of a young Brian Lucas who sadly is no longer with us . I seem to recognise the 2 with glasses but can't put a to either .

Looking back at old photos , I can't help but think: Camera technology has really improved over the last decade or so.

Far left at a guess is Box Car? Never knew him without glasses or his woolly hat......

10-11-2015, 04:24 PM
Mates of mine think the 2nd from the right is Tony Rath who was a lifelong claret until he died a few years ago. He & a big group of Clarets can be seen posing in front of a Wembley bound coach in a picture which hangs in the Bridge Bier Huis in Burnley.

10-11-2015, 04:49 PM
Benson, Karls & Popovich?

10-11-2015, 04:59 PM
It's a photo I used on another thread a couple of days ago.

I only know three on there and those who said the first from the left is Brian Lucas (BoxCar to some) are correct. Malcolm Moss is also on the pic as is someone I only knew as Preston Prick. Not sure what his was but he too sadly has passed away.

I posted it in response on another thread because the picture got Brian sacked from Prestige. He couldn't get time off work to go to the match in Frankfurt (I think the pic was taken in Liege on the way) so went off sick. The photo appeared in the Burnley Express and Brian got is cards.

Only recognize Brian Lucas and Malcolm Moss.. Remember buying a load of pre war bound volume Burnley progs off him. Was his nickname `Timekeeper`? Great pic

Think the tall guy in glasses was from Padiham. was mates with Denis Pollard who played cricket for Padiham.

10-11-2015, 07:00 PM
ClaretTony2014 The guy I mentioned at #13 called Tony Rath lived in Preston but I never heard him being called Preston Prick by anyone.

An article about Malcolm Moss that appeared in the Football League Review in the Sunderland away prog. of 20-1-68.

"Think the tall guy in glasses was from Padiham. was mates with Denis Pollard who played cricket for Padiham."

FCBurnley I think his is Ray Ward, can someone confirm?

12-11-2015, 06:58 PM
Toby, think you are right with Ray Ward. We used to play some 5 a side against them in Townley Park. They had a kid who was one of the best dribblers I have ever seen but cant remember his.

12-11-2015, 07:32 PM
Good piece on Malcolm Moss, Thanks Minnie.

12-11-2015, 07:35 PM
I remember going to Stuttgart. 25 pounds for 5 days on Central Motors . We took a massive Union Jack on 10 foot folding posts.

12-11-2015, 08:35 PM
I owned that union jack for several years after it was given to me by one of the Clarets who made that Stuttgart trip. It had 'Burnley FC' emblazoned across it in blue gloss paint (classy) and it measured 12 foot by 8 foot. I believe it was 'liberated' from the roof of Towneley Hall! As FCBurnley mentioned, it was on 10 foot poles with hinges, imagine getting that into a ground nowadays! Last I heard, it was lost in a place of 'ill-repute' in Denmark while in the custody of a well known naughty Claret from Rochdale.

12-11-2015, 09:25 PM
It certainly was liberated from Towneley Hall and I know who the liberator was, but my lips are sealed ( unless I am offered money).. the team were staying at the Hotel Graf Zeppelin. We went in for a beer and it cost a fortune ( served in silver tankards). Great days.

"ClaretTony2014 The guy I mentioned at #13 called Tony Rath lived in Preston but I never heard him being called Preston Prick by anyone."

I didn't know his and I've asked a couple of people this week who also only knew him as Preston Prick, it was a friendly nickname that he always answered to. Another Claret sadly no longer with us.

Malcolm Moss is still, somewhat irritatingly (if you are reading this Malcolm) watching the Clarets. I spoke to him at Wolves last Saturday.

Brian Lucas, as previously posted, sadly passed away at just 59 back in September 2007. He'd sat next to me for years at home games, a seat now occupied by jdrobbo. Referees got some piece once Brian had gone I have to say.

The picture is from the Eintracht Frankfurt trip but I'm fully aware of the flag that was liberated from a well known Hall in Burnley for the trip to Stuttgart. I always wondered what had happened to it.

13-11-2015, 09:02 AM
And a pic from the Stuttgart trip with the flag. I hope the curator doesn't see it.

That's a True Fan :)

The fantastically artistic painting of `BurnleyFC` was done under cover of darkness in the back street between Olympia and Brockenhurst street. Thanks for the pic CT.
