Ben Fox joins on loan!
We are pleased to announce that Burton Albion midfield player Ben Fox has today joined the club on an initial one month loan, up to and including our fixture with Nuneaton Town on New Years Day.
Ben, 18, has progressed through the Burton Albion Academy, and is highly rated by Brewers Boss Nigel Clough. Clough handed the youngster his debut against Liverpool in the EFL Cup earlier this season, where he coped well against experienced England internationals such as James Milner and Jordan Henderson, and also recently made use of him in a league fixture for the first time against pace setters Brighton and Hove Albion.
Despite his age, Ben is well developed physically, and can also operate as a central defender. He goes straight into the squad for Saturday's fixture with Altrincham.
On Fox, Manager Andy Morrel said "He's a central midfield player who likes to get the ball down and play. He has a lot of energy, is a good size, and needs some first team football. He has a great attitude, and will be a valuable addition to the squad for the Christmas period."
We would like to place our thanks on record to Burton Albion Football Club for their assistance in the quick completion of this deal.
