The England keeper was ‘on hand’ to launch his own Precision goalkeeping glove and ended up putting in a five-hour stint.

Hundreds of Clarets fans queued around Turf Moor waiting for the chance to meet Tom who put in a man-of-the-match display against Manchester United in Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Old Trafford.

Tom said: “It’s been brilliant. It far exceeded any expectation really. It’s fantastic to see and it’s a great marker in terms of how much the club is moving forward and the success that we’re having.

“We’ve had a very good start to the Premier League season and to get that amount of fans out there today, and have them stood out in the cold for four or five hours, is incredible really. It was great to talk to them about the game and hear their thoughts on the start to the season. It’s been a superb day all round.

“It was unbelievable really. They were all queueing along the road and across the road apparently. It’s fantastic and brilliant to see.

“There were a lot of kids out with it being half-term. It’s incredible and it just shows the passion and the care for the club.”

“Precision have been superb, I can’t speak highly enough of them really. They’ve certainly felt great since I’ve put them on. They took quite a bit of a hit on Saturday.”
