Date of birth
Ben is another young midfielder to have made his way to the first team from Burton Albion’s Academy.
After spending five years coming through the ranks, Ben earned his first professional deal in the summer of 2016 and, after some very encouraging performances in pre-season, was rewarded with a first team debut against Liverpool in the League Cup as a substitute. Ben joined Conference North side Tamworth on loan for most of the 2016-17 season to help aid his development at first team level and further productive spells last season with Solihull Moors and Gateshead in the National League readied him for a more prominent role in Albion’s first team squad for the 2018-19 campaign. He scored his first league goal for the club in a 1-0 win at home to Bristol Rovers that season.
