JIMMY Floyd Hasselbaink will be switching on the Christmas Lights in Burton this year.

The Christmas lights switch on will take place at 5pm on Sunday,  November 22, in the Market Place.

The Gaffer said: “It’s a great pleasure for me to switch on the Christmas lights and start the festive season in Burton.
“Since I have been manager of Burton Albion we have had a great backing from the fans, creating a great atmosphere home and away.
“The club has always been about supporting the community and making an impact in the town and engages with 8,000 people every week through the community trust.  
“In return we want the town to back its football club and I look forward to welcoming not only old fans but new ones to the Pirelli to watch the exciting team we have put together and help us to significantly boost attendances.”

Councillor David Leese, Mayor of East Staffordshire, said: “I’m very pleased that Jimmy will be switching on the Christmas lights in Burton.

“Burton Albion have made a fantastic start to the season and this will be a great opportunity for everyone to show their support.” 

The festivities will be hosted by the presenter of Touch FM’s Breakfast Show, Mark O’Sullivan, and will conclude with a fantastic firework display from Pyrotex Fireworks. Choreographed with music, it promises to be an amazing display.
