BREWERS player Tom Hamer and Joe Powell were in attendance last week at one of Burton Albion Community Trust’s Half-Term Soccer Camps.

The stars spent time signing autographs and posing for photos with budding young fans at the end of their day of footballing fun.

The camps run throughout the whole week despite the strong winds and rain of Storm Franklin, followed by sun and sleet, there was still lots of time for football competitions, games ad tournaments.

Hamer, who himself has made 27 appearances and notched one goal, said: “I loved seeing so many happy faces today. There were lots of good skills and goals on display.”

Powell, who has made 27 appearances and scored four goals this season for the Brewers, said: “It was a pleasure to come down and see so many kids getting involved in the soccer camps - They were all so much fun!"

Paul Gaskin, Head of Community engagement, said: “having the lads at the half term camp today was a pleasure. They were brilliant with the kids and in turn the kids loved them.

"Despite some of the extreme weather, it’s been a brilliant week for all involved.”
