Ben Mee has said his goodbyes to Burnley fans after an 11-year spell at Turf Moor with the help of a full-page advertisement in the local newspaper.
Mee delivered an emotional message in the Burnley Express after news of his departure was confirmed earlier this month.
"As you all probably know by now I'll be leaving the club after 11 years," Mee wrote.
"It's a club and town that has grown a very special place in my heart throughout that time.
"I'd like to thank all the staff I have worked with throughout my time at the club who made Burnley home for me.
"There are so many fantastic people that work behind the scenes to make it all tick over and it was a pleasure to work with you and get to know you all.
"To my team-mates, who I've been lucky enough to share the dressing room with, thank you for making my time so enjoyable."
"There have been plenty of brilliant players but also many great characters that have become very good friends of mine.
"We have shared lots of incredible times on and off the pitch and it was a joy sharing those moments with you."
