Delight for Burton as team lifts charity cupBurton Albion beat Mickleover 1-0 at Station Road last night to lift the KC Trust Cup.
The match, which was being played for the second consecutive year was in memory of Keith Calladine, a supporter of both teams who passed away two years ago.
Keith's son Paul, who is Events Co-ordinator at the club set up the KC Trust to provide defibrillators in Derbyshire to prevent others suffering the same fate as his father, with all proceeds going to the British Heart Foundation.
"KC Trust would like to thank the club for taking a strong team," said Paul.
"It was a fantastic evening and a big thank you to everyone who attended."
The Chairman, MP Andrew Griffiths and the Mayor and Mayoress of East Staffordshire were all on hand to see the victory.
Billy Kee scored the only goal in the 46th minute after some neat play with strike partner Dominic Knowles and despite the low scoring affair there was plenty of positives to take from the match.
The result gives Rowett's men a third successive clean sheet, with new signing Jon McLaughlin making his debut in goal. Eight scholars were also involved for Burton, with Marcus Harness being nominated as captain to recieve the trophy.
"It's a testament to the work Mike (Whitlow) has done," said Rowett
"It's an exciting time for the club and i'm looking forward to seeing their progression this season.
