Burnley returned to the top tier of English soccer for the first time in 33 years with a 1-0 win over Sheffield United in Monday's playoff final.

Midfielder Wade Elliott scored in the 13th minute at Wembley, surging past two challenges before getting the ball back and curling it from the edge of the penalty area into the top corner of the net.

"That's probably the best goal I'll ever score," Elliott said. "My mum and dad were sat up in the opposite corner and I thought about running over, but it was too hot."

Burnley finished fifth in the League Championship, two places below its opponent, and joins Wolverhampton Wanderers and Birmingham in going up. Sheffield United was demoted from the Premier League two years ago.

The promotion is likely to be worth more than $63.6 million to Burnley, which will be the 43rd team to play in the Premier League. Burnley was relegated from the top tier in 1976, 16 years before the Premier League started.

:D :D :D

I bet your so glad your TUTS name is Claret.

Welcome home mate. :D
