BURTON Albion chairman Ben Robinson and former player Aaron Webster were both in attendance for the opening evening of Burton Albion Community Trust’s 1950 Club.
Brewers fans turned out to share their Burton Albion nostalgia and memorabilia, with a range of old programmes, jerseys, autographs, newspaper clippings, team sheets and photographs on show. Club Chairman Ben Robinson gave an in-depth talk on the the club’s history, before former player Aaron Webster talked about his career, allowing fans to share their memories and stories as well.
The main aim of the evening was to give fans a trip down memory lane and to share their Burton Albion memories, especially those affected by or living with dementia. However, we would like to outline that these events are open to all fans who would like to attend.
There are two more dates for the 1950 Club, firstly on Friday, November 23 (10am-12pm) and then again with a Christmas Special on Friday, December 14, (10am-12pm), both at the Pirelli Stadium. Free teas and coffees are available at both.
John Widdowson, Health and Inclusion Manager, said: “It was a fantastic event last night and we can’t wait for the next one.
“We’re really grateful to both the chairman and to Aaron for sharing their stories and for digging some great memorabilia from their archives.
“Lots of laughs were had and there were plenty of smiles on people’s faces, as we looked back and shared plenty of great content.
“We look forward to seeing even more Brewers memorabilia and fans at the next one.”
