During the last match McDonald got injured . He changed position and
played Centre Forward . The last goal was scored by him .

I understand during their pioneering tour in the Indian Ocean they played
against Madagascar .The result was 13 against 2 in favour of the Clarets .

Burnley laid a milestone in their first visit to Mauritius . Nobody knew
about English football . All matches were played at King George V
Stadium with capacity crowd .There was an uproar . Suddenly all people
began to speak about English clubs. From 1954 to 1964 Burnley had the
largest number of Mauritian fans. Later they were supersided by
Manchester United and Liverpool from 1964.
There are still many Burnley fans in Mauritius but mostly from the older
generation. Our Deputy Commissioner of Police is a Burnley fan . There
are many ,many others. Lately there was one club named after Burnley,
but due to regionalisation local names were imposed as per our Sports
Act.

The Mauritius Cup 2004

Burnley visited Mauritius 50 years after i.e in 2004 .Unfortunately they
had lost their earlier brilliance and lost to Mauritius by 3-0. I attended the
match and could imagine to what level they had fallen. But with time ,I
understand Burnley , with coming of new players, are gathering
momentum, and hopefully we feel that this season will be a different one
with positive signs.
