CLOUGH TAKES HIS SEAT

AT BURTON

 

Brian Clough was back on top form when he took his seat in the stand at Eton Park to watch his son Nigel's Burton Albion side (April 12th, 2003). These exclusive photo's were the first of the Great Man following his liver transplant in January that year.

 

 

Brian looked well as he climbed the steps into the stand to take his seat for the match against Stevenage Borough.

One fan told Cloughie it was great to see him looking well. "Thank you, my friend," he replied.

Cloughie was back in the stand at Eton Park to watch Nigel play the full ninety minutes of Burton Albion's last home match of the season (April 24th, 2004).

 

Brian was accompanied by his wife Barbara, son Simon and grandson Stephen. He was also joined by his five-year-old grandson William, who was a mascot for the match.
