STUART Beavon says he will look back on his time with Burton Albion as the best of his footballing career so far.
The striker played a key role in securing back-to-back promotions for the Brewers, taking the club from League Two to the Championship and his passion and commitment to the cause made him the fans’ choice for Player of the Season in 2014/2015 and 2015/2016.
Beavon said: “When I signed I knew the potential was there with the players Gary Rowett was getting in. It has been a great squad and I have had a fantastic time.
“My game is all about hard work, graft, chipping in with a few goals but more about creating them – so maybe not your typical No 9. I like to think that when I go out there I give everything and that helps the team.
“The Player of the Season awards are massive for me. They are some of the most precious awards you can get. It has helped me enormously that I have felt wanted and the two awards show that.
“Those two season were all about the effort the lads put in to earn those promotions and that’s why the club is in the Championship now.
“Of the career I have had so far, the best memories have definitely been at Burton – 100 per cent. I thoroughly enjoyed my time and will definitely miss it.”
Beavon is now looking forward to his new challenge after signing for Coventry until 2018.
He said: “They are a huge club and in a false position. They are going through a rough patch as all clubs do at times but, speaking to the manager, he’s aware of the task and with the squad he has there and the players he wants to bring in, I’m sure we can get some results on the board and turn things around.”
