Burnley chairman Mike Garlick welcomes positive accounts

Burnley chairman Mike Garlick has welcomed positive accounts for the year.

The Clarets have announced they have recorded a net profit for the third successive season.

Burnley's accounts for the 2018-19 campaign, which included their Europa League adventure and securing a fourth successive season of Premier League football, show a surplus of £4.3 million for Burnley FC Holdings Ltd.

“Following our spectacular seventh-place finish in the 2017/18 season, we embarked on our first season in Europe in over 50 years ­- something, which I'm sure most of us, a few years ago, thought we would never see again," Garlick said.

“Combining our European adventure with the weekly fixture programme of the Premier League proved highly challenging.

“But following a highly successful second half of the season we managed to slowly but steadily climb up the table to a respectable finish and secure our fourth consecutive season of top-flight football for the first time in 50 years.

“I would like to thank all our staff for their continued hard work and commitment and all our fans for their unwavering support and passion. You all help to make a difference."
