Manager Bio

The 2016/17 season is Sean Dyche's second Premier League campaign with Burnley following their 2014/15 relegation.

Kettering-born Dyche started his playing career in the youth ranks at Nottingham Forest before joining Chesterfield in 1990.

The defender made over 250 appearances, captained the club and scored in their famous FA Cup semi-final against Middlesbrough in 1997.

Bristol City signed Dyche in 2007 and he helped the club get promotion to the Championship in his first season.

Following a brief loan spell with Luton Town, Dyche joined Millwall in 2009 and also achieved promotion to the Championship with the London club.

The defender signed for Watford in 2002 and captained them during the 2004/05 season.

That was to be his last season as a player with club and he signed for Northampton Town before retiring in 2007.

Dyche’s coaching career started with Watford’s youth team shortly after retiring and he soon made his way up to assistant manager under Malky Mackay.

The Scot left Watford ahead of the 2011/12 campaign and Dyche was promoted to become the Hornets’ manager in June 2011, with his first match in charge coming against Burnley at Turf Moor.

Watford and Dyche parted company in 2012 and the Englishman then spent a spell working with the England under-21 side as part of the staff put together by Stuart Pearce, who was a former playing colleague at Forest.

Burnley announced Dyche as their manager in October 2012 and he guided the club to second in the 2013/14 Championship season to automatically promote the Clarets to the Premier League.

Dyche was unable to keep the Clarets in the top-flight, but he guided the club to an immediate Premier League return after lifting the Championship trophy in the 2015/16 campaign.
