Applause for the last man standing


Filed: Saturday, 10th March 2018

Sir Trevor Brooking was applauded by protesters at the Olympic Stadium this afternoon - after nearly everyone else in the Directors' Box had fled.

Following Burnley's second goal in their 3-0 win at Stratford this afternoon, angry supporters turned their attention to the area in which David Sullivan, David Gold and Karren Brady had been sitting with their respective partners.


Fans gathered around the Directors' Box after Burnley scored their second goal


However after the three directors were forced to face loud chants of "sack the Board", they left the Directors' Box after being advised to depart by security - leading to further abuse from the fans.

However one man who refused to leave the area was club legend Brooking - and his determination to remain in his seat lead to applause from protesters and chants of "Trevor Brooking, he's one of our own."


We shall not be moved: Brooking refuses to leave his seat


It was of course not the first time Brooking has had to face protests from supporters - he was temporarily in charge of the team during 2003 when the Brown Out! protests aimed at dislodging then chairman Terry Brown were taking place.
