Burton is one of the cities or towns for which there has existed the most number of clubs or incarnations of clubs bearing its name in the Football League. When Burton Swifts merged with Burton Wanderers, they formed Burton United. All three clubs or incarnations played in the Football League.
If Burton Albion win promotion from the Conference to the Football League, it will make it four. No other town or city would have had as many clubs or incarnations of clubs in the Football League.
They reached the play-offs this time round, and might well be challenging against next season. I suppose Nigel Clough could well be the manager to achieve promotion for the club. Some of his father’s managerial acumen must have rubbed off on him.
