Played for both: Burnley

14 September 2015

Ahead of Tuesday’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Burnley, looks at the players who have represented both clubs in the league.

Dean Bowditch
Bowditch spent two months on loan with Burnley as a 19-year-old in 2005. He netted one goal in 10 games for the Clarets, with the solitary strike coming in a 3-1 triumph over Watford.

The forward spent time with six clubs following his spell at Turf Moor, before moving to stadiummk in June 2011. Currently, Bowditch has 35 goals and 158 appearances to his name as a Dons player.

Luke Chadwick
Chadwick spent the entire 2003/04 season on loan at Turf Moor while on the books at Manchester United. He featured 40 times in all competitions for the Clarets and scored six goals, including a brace in a 4-0 win over Bradford City.

Then, following spells with West Ham United, Stoke City and Norwich City, Chadwick moved to the Dons and spent close to six years in Milton Keynes. During his time at stadiummk, he racked up 247 appearances, making him one of the Club’s longest-serving players.

Drissa Diallo
Burnley was Diallo’s first club in England following his move from Belgium in January 2003 but after just 18 appearances and five months the defender joined Ipswich Town on a free transfer.

Diallo enjoyed a much longer spell with the Dons after joining in July 2006. He featured 82 times during a two-and-a-half year stint in Milton Keynes and played his part during the Club’s double-winning season of 2007/08.

Chris Long
Long moved to the Dons on loan from Everton in January 2014 and scored on his debut. He featured three more times for Karl Robinson’s men before an injury cut short his stay in Milton Keynes.

After spending the 2014/15 campaign out on loan, Long left Goodison Park this past summer to join Burnley on a permanent basis. He made his first league appearance for the Clarets in their 3-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday last Saturday.

Mark Randall
Arsenal sent Randall out on loan to Burnley in January 2008 and the midfielder featured 10 times for the Clarets during his three-month spell in Lancashire.

Two years later, Randall spent time as a loanee with the Dons – the club he re-joined on a permanent basis in March 2014. Randall has made a total of 35 appearances for the men from MK1 but is currently sidelined with a long-term pelvis injury.

Tickets for Tuesday's clash with Burnley are now only available to buy upon arrival at Turf Moor, priced at £24 for adults, £15 for over-65s and under-22s and £7 for under-18s.
