Welcome Burnley fans: The answer is this...

I noticed a lot of action on my website last night looking at a story about the first issue of the Sunday Times Magazine.

Published as the Sunday Times Colour Section on February 4 1962, the magazine featured 11 shots of model Jean Shrimpton by David Bailey, and one of Burnley football legend Jimmy McIlroy.

The reason for the sudden interest. A quiz question on the Burnley thread of the Footymad website asking: "What ground breaking event links Jean 'The Shrimp' Shrimpton and Jimmy McIlroy?"

Now you know.
