Burnley struggled in English football's second tier, narrowly avoiding a further relegation in —32 by only two points; the years through to the outbreak of the Second World War were characterised by uninspiring league finishes, broken only by a FA Cup semi-final appearance in —35 and the arrival and equally swift departure of English Football Hall of Fame inductee and centre-forward Tommy Lawton.
In the first season of post-war league football, Burnley gained promotion through second place in the Second Division; the club's defence was nicknamed "The Iron Curtain", since they only conceded 29 goals in 42 league matches. From to , under the reign of lifelong Burnley supporter and newly appointed chairman Bob Lord , later described as "the Khrushchev of Burnley" as a result of his authoritative attitude,  the club became one of the most progressive around.

Further, the club became, after foundations were again laid by Lord and Brown,   renowned for their youth policy and scouting system, which yielded many young players over the years such as Jimmy Adamson , Jimmy McIlroy , John Connelly , Willie Morgan and Martin Dobson. In his relatively short spell at the club from to , Brown also introduced short corners and a huge array of free kick routines, which were soon copied across the land;  the —56 season saw the club finish 7th in the league and reach the fourth round of the FA Cup, where they were knocked out by Chelsea after four replays.
The team of this period revolved around the midfield duo of one-club man Jimmy Adamson and playmaker Jimmy McIlroy a new stand was named after the latter in the s and these two were key to the championship-winning team of —60 managed by Potts who now gives his name to the road which Turf Moor occupies. Harry Potts often employed the, at the time unfashionable, 4—4—2 formation and he introduced Total Football to English football in his first seasons at the club. Burnley endured a tense —60 season in which Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers were the other protagonists in the chase for the league title, but the club ultimately clinched their second league championship on the last day of the season at Maine Road , Manchester with a 2—1 victory against Manchester City with goals from Brian Pilkington and Trevor Meredith.
The following season Burnley played in European competition for the first time,  beating former European Cup finalists Reims , before losing to Hamburger SV in the quarter-finals , losing in a FA Cup semi-final to Tottenham and finishing fourth in the league.
Burnley finished the —62 season as runners-up after only winning two of the last thirteen league matches  to newly promoted Ipswich Town and had a run to the FA Cup Final , where a Jimmy Robson goal, the th FA Cup Final goal at Wembley,  was their only reply to 3 goals from Spurs. Jimmy Adamson was, however, named Footballer of the Year in English football after the season ended.
Nonetheless, although far from a two-man team, the controversial departure of McIlroy to Stoke City and retirement of Adamson coincided with a decline in fortunes. Adamson reputedly turned down the England manager's post which then went to former Ipswich manager Alf Ramsey. Burnley, could no longer compete financially with teams from bigger towns and cities,  they managed, however, to retain their First Division place throughout the decade finishing third in —66 , with Willie Irvine becoming the league's top goal scorer that season,  and reaching the semi-final of the League Cup in — They had also reached the quarter-finals of the —67 Fairs Cup , in which they were knocked out by German side Eintracht Frankfurt.
The remainder of the decade was otherwise one of mid-table mediocrity, with Potts being replaced by Adamson as manager in after a year spell. Burnley won the Second Division title in —73 with Adamson still in charge; as a result, they were invited to play in the FA Charity Shield where they emerged as winners against the reigning holders of the shield, Manchester City.

Three nondescript seasons in the Second Division followed before relegation to the Third Division for the first time in — Of 42 league games, Burnley could not manage a win in either their first or last Two seasons later, now under the management of Brian Miller ,  they were promoted as champions in the club's centenary year. Managerial changes continued to be made in an unsuccessful search for success; Miller was replaced by Frank Casper in early , he by John Bond before the —84 season and Bond himself by John Benson a season later.
Benson was in charge when Burnley were relegated to the fourth level of English football for the first time ever at the end of the —85 season. Martin Buchan briefly and then Tommy Cavanagh saw the side through —86 before Miller returned for the —87 season, the last match of which is known as "The Orient Game". Although, in retrospect, this has only served to blur the lines between professional and semi-professional leagues in England, at the time it was perceived that teams losing league status might never recover from this.
A 2—1 win, with goals from Neil Grewcock and Ian Britton , was enough to keep Burnley in Division Four, although even that achievement still relied on a loss by Lincoln City in their last game of the season. A capacity crowd of 80, people packed Wembley was a record for a match between two teams from English football's fourth tier, as Wolves won 2—0.
By winning the Fourth Division title, the Clarets became only the second club to have won all top four professional divisions of English football and the team is currently one of five clubs to have achieved this feat, along with Wolverhampton Wanderers , Preston North End , Sheffield United and Portsmouth.
Chris Waddle was player-manager in that season, but his departure and the appointment of Stan Ternent that summer saw the club start to make further progress. Burnley immediately made an impact, as during the —01 and —02 seasons, they emerged as serious contenders for a promotion play-off place. In early , financial problems caused by the collapse of ITV Digital brought the club again close to administration.
Burnley made a good start to the —07 campaign, but their form tailed away badly shortly before Christmas, leaving them threatened by relegation; the squad set a club record for consecutive league games without a win, with their game against Luton Town being the 18th one of the season 19 including a cup game , meaning they had gone one fixture further than the 17 league game streak of the —90 season.
After that, a short run of good form in the final weeks of the competition saw Burnley finish comfortably above the relegation places, ensuring that they remained in the Championship. The following season Burnley's poor early-season results led to the departure of manager Steve Cotterill in November , his replacement was St Johnstone manager Owen Coyle. Coyle's first full season in charge ended with the Clarets ' highest league finish since , fifth in the Championship;  that was enough to qualify the club for the Championship play-offs.
Burnley beat Reading 3—0 on aggregate in the semi-final, and the team went on to beat Sheffield United 1—0 in the final at Wembley Stadium , promoting Burnley to the Premier League , a return to the top flight after 33 years. After being up by three goals to nil at home after 90 minutes, the away goals rule comes into play after extra time has been played in the League Cup,  the Clarets crashed out after two Spurs goals in the last two minutes of extra time, preventing two Wembley appearances in one season.
Burnley's promotion made the town of Burnley the smallest to host a Premier League club, since the rebranding of the league divisions in ,    they started the season well, becoming the first newly promoted team in the Premier League to win their first four league home games, including a 1—0 win over defending champions Manchester United. Nonetheless, he left the club in October to rejoin his hometown club Bournemouth; Howe citing personal reasons for the move,  he was replaced in the same month by Watford manager Sean Dyche.
Before the start of the —14 season, Burnley were tipped as one of the relegation candidates, as Dyche had to work with a tight budget and a small squad, and they had lost top goal scorer Charlie Austin to Championship rivals QPR.

Burnley went yet one better than their previous time in the Championship and won the division in —16 , equaling their club record of 93 points of —14, ending the season with a run of 23 league games undefeated.

Burnley Football Club - History
Burnley's away kit for the —07 season, a yellow shirt with claret bar, yellow shorts and yellow socks, won the Best Kit Design award at the Football League Awards ;  the following season , a new home kit was released, echoing the s shirt; all claret with a blue v-neck and rims on the end of the arms which sport the word "Burnley". It featured gold trim and a new gold logo for the club's th anniversary. Since , Burnley's kits have been manufactured by Umbro , who were also the club's first shirt manufacturers from to The Clarets' first recorded usage of a crest was on 17 December , when they wore the Prince of Wales' coat of arms on their shirt;  the Prince of Wales, Prince Albert Victor , visited Turf Moor a year before when Burnley was playing Bolton Wanderers, which was the first ever visit by a member of the Royal Family.
A forerunner of the club's current badge, and thus the coat of arms of the town of Burnley, was first recorded in In , when Burnley won the league title for a second time, they were allowed to wear the town's crest of the period on their shirts;  the town's coat of arms was worn until , when it was replaced with the simple vertical initials " BFC ". In , the initials were placed horizontally and were lettered with gold. Four years after that, in , the club used a new designed badge based on the town's crest, before returning to a horizontal version of the " BFC " initials in , which were lettered in white this time.
The latest major change to the club crest came in the —10 season.

The club's mascot is Bertie Bee. Dressed in a bee suit, he wears the Burnley home kit with shirt number and is popular with the Burnley fans,  he became known nationwide for rugby tackling a streaker on the pitch at Turf Moor who had evaded the stewards during a match against local rivals Preston in , and appeared on the BBC Television sporting panel show They Think It's All Over after the event.

Fifty years later, they invited Burnley Football Club to move from their original premises at Calder Vale to a pitch adjacent to the cricket field;  the ground originally consisted of just a pitch and the first grandstand was not built until Many supporters were also locked out, and the road from Bradford over the Moss at Colne had to be closed to traffic. When the BBC highlights programme Match of the Day began in , Lord banned the BBC from televising matches at Turf Moor, and maintained the ban for five years, arguing that live coverage would "damage and undermine attendances".
Until , The Turf had a slight slope in the field, when chairman Bob Lord made a resolution to relay the pitch and to remove the slope. In , plans were made to extend the stadium to a capacity of around 28,;  this capacity increase would include a second tier attached to the Bob Lord stand, along with a complete re-development of the stand. In addition, a new stand was planned to replace the Cricket Field Stand, which would also hold a cricket pavilion and hotel.
In late , these plans were put on hold as general economic conditions worsened in the UK. Burnley and Helmond have a small following who regularly make an overseas journey to visit each other's matches.
