BURNLEY FC’s new first team strip will be exposed to an audience of millions when it features in a dramatic episode of the nation’s most popular soap.

The club received a request earlier in the summer from the producers of Coronation Street for a junior Clarets kit.

Sneak previews of an episode to be aired on Friday show youngster Amy McDonald wearing the new Puma shirt.

Corrie character Amy, played by actress Elle Mulvaney, is pictured in preview images crouched over her mother, Tracy, after her health takes a dramatic turn for the worse.

A spokesman for Burnley FC said: “We received a request from Coronation Street to provide a kit for the actress who plays Amy to wear.

“I believe the context is that she’s taking part in a summer soccer skills course.

“We were only too glad to provide the strip and are glad that the character of Amy has the good sense to be a Clarets fan.”

The kit will be worn for the first time in a competitive game the day after the Corrie episode, when Burnley take on ex-boss Owen Coyle’s Bolton Wanderers at Turf Moor.
