A ROSSENDALE firm will be balancing the books for Burnley.

Cassons, based at St Crispin Way, Haslingden, have been signed up to be the club’s new accountants.

The firm will carry out the audit and provide tax, financial and general business advice.

Carlton Cooper, partner at Cassons, said: “Cassons has its roots in Burnley and there’s an immense amount of pride among our employees that we have been appointed by the club.”

“Obviously we are taking up this role at a very exciting time in Burnley’s history. From a personal point of view — as a lifelong Burnley supporter and a season ticket holder — this is a very special day for Cassons.”

Under the agreement, Cassons will also assist the club in preparing and completing financial reports to the football authorities and provide support to Turf Moor’s new financial controller, Steve Cook.

Burnley FC director Clive Holt: “We are very pleased to welcome back Cassons. They are a growing local company, with many employees who are Clarets fans.”

Cassons have also been appointed to work for Burnley Football Club in the Community, a charitable organisation linked to the club.
