Neil Warnock Opens Tom Eccleshall Suite

9 August 2012

Leeds manager joins Ben Robinson to open newly refurbished West Bar

Former Burton Albion manager Neil Warnock joined Chairman Ben Robinson to open the Pirelli Stadium's newly refurbished and renamed Tom Eccleshall Suite on Tuesday evening. The new suite, the West Bar of the Pirelli Stadium, is named after Burton Albion's former Groundsman and Chairman of Eton Park Sports & Social Club Tom Eccleshall. Tom worked as groundsman between 1969 and 1983, a spell which included Neil Warnock's first years in charge of the Brewers.

Members of Tom's family, including son Brian Eccleshall who undertook the refurbishment of the Suite and great-grandson Tom who plays for the Burton Albion Under 12 side, joined Warnock to officially unveil the new Suite.
