FAN OF THE YEAR TO BE ANNOUNCED ON SATURDAY

27 April 2016

THE first Burton Albion Fan of the Year will be revealed at the Gillingham game on Saturday.

The winner will receive the George Rider Memorial Trophy at half-time.
 
The trophy will be an annual award for a supporter who has shown dedication and commitment beyond the norm in following the Brewers.
 
The trophy has been donated by Margaret Morton, whose grandfather George Rider was a long-standing Brewers fan. She will present the trophy to the Fan of the Year - chosen from nominations made by Brewers supporters.
 
George Rider was the treasurer of the old Burton Albion Supporters’ Club. George was a dedicated Brewers supporter at the old Lloyd’s ground on Wellington Street, where he worked on the turnstiles.
 
Margaret said: “I wanted my grandfather to be remembered for his dedication to Burton Albion and hope this trophy goes to a fan who has shown the same devotion and commitment to the football club.”
