THOUSANDS of Clarets fans have lined the streets of Burnley to welcome Sean Dyche's promotion heroes.

The manager addressed the crowd in Manchester Road from the balcony of the town hall, where his players and staff were given a civic reception.

The town centre was awash with claret and blue balloons, flags, and scarves as the entire squad stepped out to greet the sea of supporters.

An open-top bus is set to make its way through the town to Turf Moor at 3pm.
