Corbett awarded Testimonial match

2 May 2013

Burton Albion will take on Derby County on Tuesday, May 7th in a testimonial match for Andy Corbett; 7:30pm kick-off.

The 31-year-old has enjoyed a Testimonial Dinner on April 5th and a Golf Day on April 30th and is now set to be rewarded for a decade of service with a match against the Rams.

Originally signed as a striker by then manager Nigel Clough in November 2003, Corbett has gone on to represent the club on almost 500 occasions. 

The right-back was also an integral part of the team as Burton gained promotion to the Football League as Champions in 2009.

Derby are set to bring a strong side to the Pirelli Stadium, whilst the Brewers will welcome back some popular and familiar faces to pull on a the Burton shirt once again.

Corbett said: ‘I’m really looking forward to the evening and hopefully it will come on the back of two great results against Bradford.

‘It’s going to be great to have the lads from Derby over and terrific to have some former Burton players back playing at the Pirelli as well.

‘I really appreciate Nigel bringing a team and it’ll be certainly be a special occasion for me. The ideal scenario will then be to round it off with promotion on May 18th!’

Tickets for the Burton Albion v Derby County Testimonial are priced at £10 and £5 Under 16s and will be available on the turnstiles before Tuesday’s game.
