Here’s to you, Mr. Robinson…
Fan, businessman, philanthropist, Chairman. Ben Robinson lives and breathes Burton Albion, a club which he’s helped become a real family.
What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.
