BURTON Albion defender Shaun Barker can be seen at a special event at QUAD in Derby.
On Tuesday, March 14, at 7pm, you can watch a film chronicling Barker’s long battle against injury which will be followed by a Q&A with the player.
“It was an injury you were more likely to see from a victim of a bad car crash,” was the verdict of Derby County physio Neil Sullivan. In a match against local rivals, Nottingham Forest, in March 2012, Derby County captain Shaun Barker ruptured his medial, anterior cruciate and posterior cruciate knee ligaments in a collision with goalkeeper Frank Fielding.
Shaun Barker: One More Time chronicles his recovery from that career-threatening injury as he attempts to return to first team football after almost four years.
Barker has since made an emotional return to football with Burton Albion, making his debut against the Rams earlier this season
Featuring interviews from Burton Albion boss Nigel Clough, Jake Buxton, Craig Bryson, Roy McFarland, Roger Davies, Seth Johnson and Mel Morris, this feature-length documentary explores the fragility of athletes’ careers, as well as the importance of legacy, integrity and loyalty in the world of football.
There will be a post screening Q&A by director Ashley Carter with Shaun Barker.
Tickets - £12 Full, £10 Concession and £9 QUAD Members.
Fifty per cent of the ticket price will go to the Shaun Barker Foundation charity.
