Sean Dyche goes for pint in pub named after him and signs mural of himself
EX-Burnley gaffer Sean Dyche made a shock new signing when he popped for a pint at a boozer named in his honour and inked his own mural.
The pub, formerly The Princess Royal, became The Royal Dyche in 2018 after he kept the Clarets in the Premier League.
But he never took them up on their offer of drinks on the house.
Dyche, 51, was sacked by the club’s new American owners in May as Burnley headed for relegation — and nipped in for a pint and chatted with fans on Wednesday.
Dyche, in jeans instead of his trademark suit and tie, signed the mural: “To all at the Royal. Dyche.”
Fan John Palmer said: “That guy is always welcome in Burnley.”
Fellow Claret Eric Grace added: “This speaks volumes about the man. Honesty and integrity.
“Good luck for the future Sean. It was a great ride.”
The pub threatened to fine punters if they dared to ask for the name to be changed after Dyche’s departure.
