The former Clarets’ captain’s funeral cortege passes by Turf Moor on Harry Potts Way on Friday at approximately 1.30pm, following a service at St John the Evangelist Church, Worsthorne, at 12 noon.

Then, ahead of kick-off v West Ham United on Sunday, and in keeping with the family’s wishes, fans will be asked to join players and staff in a celebration of Peter’s life and his contribution to the club.

The players will also be wearing black armbands in tribute to the midfielder, who made a total of 299 appearances for the Clarets between 1973 and 1979.
