Profile

Burton Albion are managed by Nigel Clough who returned to the Pirelli Stadium in December 2015 following the departure of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink to QPR.

Clough previously managed the Brewers between 1998-2009, leading the club from the Northern Premier League up to the Conference, but went on to top that feat by delivering Championship football for the first time in the club's history.

Established in 1950, Burton Albion started out in the lower regions of the non league ladder and have gradually worked their way through the leagues. Having won the Northern Premier League in the 2001-2002 season, the Brewers competed in the Conference for several seasons and it was whilst they were in that league that they gained the biggest result of their history.

Handed the plum draw of Manchester United in the 2006 FA Cup Third Round draw, Burton managed to hold the Premier League giants to a 0-0 draw before losing the replay 5-0 at Old Trafford, but it had been a magical time for fans that saw 11,000 fans head up to the Theatre Of Dreams.

During this time an integral member of their progression was Nigel Clough, who was the clubs manager for over a decade and it was finally in the 2008-2009 season that Burton won that coveted promotion to the Football League.

Hasselbaink took charge of Burton back in November 2014, replacing Gary Rowett in the dugout, and went on to steer the Brewers up to League One, before Clough returned in December and proceeded to lead the club into the Championship.
