THINK you really know about your club?

Well now is your chance to prove you have what it takes to become the first Brain of Burnley.

In conjunction with club historian Ray Simpson, Burnley are looking to find the most knowledgeable Clarets’ fan out there in our unique competition.

‘Brain of Burnley’ is a quiz to test you on your knowledge of all things Claret and Blue.

Each contestant will go under the spotlight with two rounds of questions, one on a mix of general and wider sport and then the specialised subject of Burnley Football Club.

The club will film each candidate and run the heats as regular features on Clarets Player building up to a live, grand final to be staged at Turf Moor later this year.
