IT was a packed house for Burton Albion’s annual Sporting Dinner which this year featured former Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Mark Crossley.

Crossley played more than 300 times for Forest in a 13-year career that ended in 2000. He was also a Wales international, making eight appearances.

He entertained guests with tales from his time playing for Brian Clough at the City Ground.

He said: “It’s great to be here at Burton Albion that has so many connections with the Clough family and to tell you about my time playing for the greatest man manager there ever was.”

Comedian Mick Miller, who rose through New Faces to TV fame on the Comedians show alongside some of the biggest names in the business, was also on the bill.

In the audience was Brewers manager Dino Maamria and Chairman Ben Robinson.

The evening was hosted by Burton Albion Community Trust’s Reece Brown and former Brewers player and Hall of Famer Aaron Webster.

During the evening an auction, raffle and stand up bingo were held with proceeds from the event going to support the work of Burton Albion Community Trust.
