BURTON Albion’s Commercial Director Fleur Robinson has been appointed to the board of the EFL Trust.
The EFL Trust is the official charity of the English Football League and its aim is to use the power of sport to improve lives and make a positive contribution in 72 communities across the country.
The EFL Trust draws together the charity arms of all 72 EFL clubs including Burton Albion Community Trust, where Fleur has been a trustee since it was formed after the Brewers promotion to what is now the English Football League in 2009.
Fleur said: “Burton Albion Football Club has always had community at the heart of everything it does, and we are very proud of the achievements of our award-winning community trust.
“It has been a great sense of pride for myself and everyone else at Burton Albion to watch that work grow.
“I’m now delighted to be able to take that experience to the EFL Trust and help the wider football community.
“The EFL Trust has a unique opportunity to inspire people and make a difference and I’m looking forward to playing a part in that.”
Burton Albion Chairman Ben Robinson said: “Everyone at the football club is delighted that Fleur will be able to use the valuable experience she has gained working with our community trust, and the football club or more than 20 years, on a national level.
“Community is at the heart of everything we do at this club and we are proud to be part of the impact football makes up and down the country every day of the week.”
EFL Trust Chairman John Nixon said: “We are delighted to welcome Fleur onto the EFL Trust board as an EFL representative. With over 20 years’ experience in football, Fleur will bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the position.
“We’re sure she’ll play an important and active role in helping the EFL Trust, through the network of clubs and club community trusts, to have an even greater impact in helping to change the lives of millions of people every season.”
