Re: Burnley Utility XI

I may be dreaming this, but didn't Peter Mellor go off injured in his debut at Derby in August 1969?

If I'm right, who replaced him in goal?

I should be able to remember all this, I was at the game.

I pre-date the charts too, so I'm going for the date I became a Claret, at a match v. Tottenham in December 1965.

I hope that's not an omen. If the match had been two weeks later it would be We Can Work It Out by The Beatles, which would be much better.
