THE latest recruit to the Club Albion Business club has a long affinity with the Brewers.
Kevin Banton of Construction Supplies, grew up watching the Brewers when he was a youngster with his father and even played for the Albion once.
Kevin said: “In the 1974/75 season I was a club mascot aged 10 after winning a Burton inter school penalty shootout competition and going on to winning the final in a shootout at Eton Park. This was at the time when the likes of Ian Storey Moore, Brendan Phillips, Terry Spinner, Phil Annable played for the club and the side got to the semi-final of the FA Trophy. I have memories of running out onto a mud bath of a pitch with the team before their FA Trophy Quarter Final away at Dagenham which Burton won 3-1.
“I continued to watch the Albion in the early 1980s with my dad until I signed for Leicester City professionally, I did make one appearance for Burton Albion under manager Neil Warnock.”
Kevin joined Construction Supplies in 1988 as as salesman while also playing at Gresley Rovers in 1988, he then became a shareholder in 2002 before becoming the sole owner in 2014.
Construction Supplies have over 35 years of experience, the company was established in 1979 and is a supplier both locally via their trade centre, and nationally, of architectural ironmongery (handles, hinges, locks, latches etc) alongside fixings, silicones, adhesives, power tools and associated products.
