MATCH PREVIEW: MORECAMBE

13 October 2022

IT’S the first of three home games in a week for the Brewers starting with the visit of Morecambe on Saturday, October 15, with a 3pm kick off.

Albion are back on home turf after gaining a well-deserved point away at promotion-chasing Peterborough last time out.

DID YOU KNOW?

Burton Albion’s first-ever home game as a Football League club was against Morecambe back in August 2009. The Brewers won 5-2 to get their first league campaign up and running.

HEAD-TO-HEAD

Burton Albion and Morecambe have been locking horns since both clubs were in the Northern Premier League. Since the Brewers were promoted to the Football League in 2009 the two clubs have met 15 times with the Brewers winning eight, drawing two and losing five of the games. Honours were even last year with the Brewers winning 3-2 at the Pirelli Stadium and Morecambe winning the reverse fixture 3-0.

MATCH OFFICIALS

The referee will be Tom Reeves. In the 14 games he has officiated this season, he has shown 53 yellow cards and no red cards.

The assistant referees will be Nik Barnard and Paul Stonier, with Abbas Khan as the fourth official.

CHARITY COLLECTIONS

To mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October, Burton Albion Community Trust is supporting a charity project asking fans to donate bras for recycling.

The national charity Against Breast Cancer runs a scheme where UK residents can donate their old or never worn bras to the charity which then arranges for the donations to be sent to less economically developed countries, where many women will benefit from the items which are seen as a luxury.

In exchange for the weight of bras collected, the charity receives monetary donations which goes towards funding research to find a cure for breast cancer.

Burton Albion Community Trust is accepting donations at the Family Zone before kick-off. Look out for the collection point or ask a staff member.

Thanks to everyone who donated to Derbyshire Blood Bikes at the Forest Green home game helping to raise £432.
