FAMILY AND NCS DAY – ‘A HUGE SUCCESS’

BREWERS fans have played a huge part in making Burton Albion’s annual Family and NCS Day at the Pirelli Stadium another successful event.

Burton Albion Community Trust (BACT) staff, alongside club representatives from the National Citizen Service (NCS) programme, helped organise and deliver pre-match activities ahead of the Brewers fixtures against Fleetwood Town.

Over 100 people were in attendance at the Burton Albion Community Football Centre 3G to take part in sports, arts, crafts and other activities as the club celebrated the work they deliver in the community.

First-team players Ben Fox, Damien McCrory, Callum Hawkins and Jack Livesey also took out their time to visit the session, putting their skills to the test, taking on football skill competitions, whilst also posing for photos and signing autographs for the excited youngsters.

The day also included performances from the BACT Dance Team, as well as the use of the Burton Albion Sensory Room for local children who suffer with autism.

Matt Hancock, Head of Community, said: “It was a fantastic afternoon and went just the way that we had planned. We would like to thank everybody who joined us throughout the day and for the pre-match activities. Overall, despite the result of the game, the day was a huge success”.
