Who is Burton Albion's manager?

Jake Fred Buxton was born on the 4th of March, 1985 in Sutton in Ashfield, England and is the current manager of Burton Albion FC. Buxton played football as a defender for English sides such as Wigan Athletic, Burton Albion, Derby County and Mansfield Town between the years of 2002 and 2020.

Buxton came through the youth academy of Mansfield Town in 2000 before making his first team debut in 2002. He went on to make 151 competitive appearances for the club with only 1 loan deal to Alfreton Town in 2003 over the course of 6 years.

In 2008, Burton Albion signed Jake Buxton where he made 40 appearances in his lone season at the club winning the 2008/09 Conference Premier and the November player of the month award. He was also given the Burton Albion player of the year award at the end of the season which attracted interest from many big clubs in England.

Derby County won the race for Buxton’s signature in 2009 where he made 139 appearances over the course of 7 years. He then had a one year stint with Wigan Athletic in 2016 with 39 appearances to his name before returning to Burton Albion in 2017 where he still makes features in the first team to this day.

In 2020, Buxton was made player-manager of the club which would allow him to continue making appearances for the first team. Buxton replaced the previous manager Nigel Clough who resigned on the 18th of May 2020. Buxton played under Nigel Clough in 2008 at Derby County and was amazed to replace him over 10 years later.

In the 2019/20 season, Burton Albion finished 9th in the EFL League One season which was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. This season, the fans will hope for a promotion push despite losing 6 players to retirement and contract expiries.
