Saturday 5th November
Burton Albion v Macclesfield
Some excellent beer was had from the local Burton Bridge Brewery. The Macclesfield fans tribute flag to Keith Alexander (ex manager) and Richard Butcher (player who was only 29) who both died in the last 12 months!
As Brighton had never played Burton I decided on one of our free Saturdays to head up to Burton Albion. Macclesfield were the opposition and the much better team but lost 1-0 in from of just over 2.5k people. The Macclesfield cause was not helped by the half time sub who lasted 11 seconds, yes ELEVEN seconds before being sent off for a leading elbow when going for a header!
