ACCRINGTON Clarets got a rare sight of Burnley hero Robbie Blake hanging out of the coach sunroof as they celebrated the win at Wembley.
The Accy Clarets leader Phil Miller was in charge of sending 21 coaches to Wembley to cheer on Burnley on their euphoric march to the Premiership.
And, while waiting to get off the Wembley car park after Wade Elliott’s goal saw off Sheffield United in the estimated £60m clash, the fans got a treat.
"It was chaos getting off the car park so we decided to go to the pub at the corner of the ground and just wait," said Phil.
"The team coach came out and had to wait just outside the pub and the sight of Robbie Blake standing up in the sunroof and throwing the players club ties down to the fans is something I will never forget.
"The coach driver got one of the fan’s cameras and took some photos on the coach of the players as well. It was superb."
It needed tactical precision for Phil, who is based at the Stanley Street Club, and co to organise the trip adding another coach at the last minute as they were inundated with people wanted to support Owen Coyle’s side.
"It almost went without a hitch - almost! We moved around 1000 people and we only made one mistake where one coach went without four people and then we had eight people for four seats at the end!
"It was a bit of chaos but we got a taxi down for them costing £275 and they didn’t seem to mind.
"It was just a fantastic day. I had a tear in my eye on the final whistle and I am so proud of Owen Coyle and the lads and what they have achieved.
"It was a fantastic atmosphere going there and coming back and everyone was well behaved.
"It’s been a rollercoaster supporting Burnley. I remember when we nearly dropped out of the league against Leyton Orient and I remember going to Carlisle on a freezing cold Tuesday in the Autowindscreens Shield when we got beat.
"And this season it has been Chelsea, Tottenham and Wembley and it has been superb.
"We proved ourselves last season against the big sides so hopefully we can do it again in the Premiership. This is just the beginning for us."
