George Oghani could be a player to
embody Burnley's transition from
bottom of the League to Wembley i
n one season.
After the 1989 season, Brian Miller set
about re-modeling his Burnley team,
and signed no less than 8 players. One
of those being George Oghani. In the
1987-88 season he scored 20 goals,
including the goal of the season at
Preston in the Sherpa Van Trophy
His second season wasn't as successful,
but even after an embarrassing incident
at ASDA involving an ironing board, the club backed him, but
then he was involved in another incident at training, and was sold
off Stockport County in April 1989.
George was Born in Manchester, and made his name at Bolton
Wanderers, after playing for Sheffield United and Bury. Whilst at
Bolton he appeared at Wembley for th first time, but ended up, as
he would whilst playing for Burnley on the losing side.
Whilst at Stockport and then at Hereford, he failed to make an
haul since he was at Turf Moor, 18 goals.
He then moved to Greece, with Evagoras, and then to Carlisle.
