Burton Albion have offered to bring their full first team squad to the Don Amott Arena to play Mickleover FC in a friendly match.
With Mickleover manager John McGrath and striker Stuart Beavon both ex Brewers players, the connections between the two clubs remain close.
It could be new player manager Jake Buxton’s first games in charge since taking over from Nigel Clough, plus Buxton is also due to play in the NHS All Stars Charity match.
We want to thank Burton chairman Ben Robinson and Jake Buxton for offering to bring their team to help us survive and at no cost, also for loaning some kit for the Charity match. It’s absolutely brilliant that a local football league club would do this to help us.
said Mickleover chairman Don Amott.
