ACADEMY graduate Ben Radcliffe signed his first professional contract with Burton Albion in the summer of 2022 after impressing in the Professional Development Phase.
As a first-year scholar, Radcliffe was named one of 2020's BBC Young Reporter competition winners. His submission highlighted the importance of mental health in football, while he also shared his experience of being an apprentice with the Brewers.
That same year, Radcliffe played a key role as the PDP side reached the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup for the first time, including a fantastic victory away at Southampton.
In 2022, Radcliffe spent time out on loan at John McGrath's Mickleover, scoring and assisting plenty of goals, before being named Scholar of the Year at that April's Awards Evening.
