The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Joshua Richards

TOM Heaton in­sists Sean Dy­che de­serves all the praise that comes his way af­ter the Burn­ley boss cel­e­brated three years in charge of the club on Fri­day.

Since ar­riv­ing at Turf Moor, Dy­che has en­dured a roller­coaster ride of emo­tions, help­ing the club into the Pre­mier League only to be rel­e­gated from the promised land last sea­son.

But one con­stant has been his man be­tween the sticks with 29-year-old Heaton play­ing ev­ery league game since ar­riv­ing at Burn­ley in July 2013 – and the club cap­tain be­lieves things can only get bet­ter un­der Dy­che.

“It’s a great mile­stone for him and he’s been ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic for this foot­ball club,” Heaton said.“I love play­ing for him and I hope that can con­tinue for a long, long time.

“The evo­lu­tion of the club has been re­ally pos­i­tive.The in­fras­truc­ture of the club has been looked at as well as the team and the squad.

“It’s a real club to be reck­oned with and a lot of credit goes to him and his staff for that.

“The im­por­tant thing is we keep mov­ing for­wards.”

IM­PRESSED: Tom Heaton
