A HOST of ex-Burnley stars will be dusting their boots off on Sunday in support of former team-mate Lenny Johnrose.

Johnrose was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in March 2017, a condition which is currently without a cure.

In a bid to raise vital funds a match between Burnley and Swansea, two of his former clubs, was arranged to help raise awareness of MND.

Among those taking part is Steve Davis, the long-serving Clarets skipper who helped the club to promotion in 1999/00, with Stan Ternent in the home dug-out.

“The willingness of the lads to get here, from both teams, and support Lenny shows how highly he is thought of and how valued he was as a team-mate and friend,” Davis said.

“He is tackling this situation in typical Lenny style – head-on and not ducking anything. I hope as many people as possible can get to the game to make it a special day and, more importantly, support the Trust for Lenny and his family.”

Other ex-Clarets set to be involved include Brian Jensen, Graham Alexander, Micky Mellon, Steve Davis, Ian Cox, Mitchell Thomas, Paul Weller, Chris Brass, John Mullin, Andy Payton, Gareth Taylor, Tony Grant, Paul Cook, Andy Cooke, Ronnie Jepson, Glen Little and Robbie Blake.

The game will be played at Bamber Bridge FC, on Sunday (1pm), with admission priced at £10 for adults and £5 for children.

Several of the ex-Clarets have also donated memorabilia from their playing careers to be auctioned in aid of the Trust.
