Ex-Clarets at World Cup theme day

Lancashire Telegraph: Former Burnley players Paul Weller and Jimmy Robson with pupils at the World Cup theme day Former Burnley players Paul Weller and Jimmy Robson with pupils at the World Cup theme day

FORMER Burnley players talked about football at an event at Blessed Trinity College.

The Burnley school organised a World Cup-themed day with former Clarets Jimmy Robson and Paul Weller.

The pair were asked a series of questions by the students and also pupils from Unity College, Shuttleworth College, St John Thursby and Hameldon Community College, The Rose and Acers.

Pupils who took part in the question and answer session then wrote a newspaper article. The questions ranged from favourite goal to whether the World Cup should be hosted by countries with poorer economies.

Jimmy, who won the First Division with Burnley in 1960 and scored in the FA Cup final when they lost 3-1 to Tottenham in 1962, said his best match was scoring five goals in a game.
