After a playing career that took in Nottingham Forest, Liverpool and Manchester City, Nigel Clough moved into the non-league as player-manager of Burton Albion. He led the club from the seventh tier of the English game to the brink of promotion to League Two, before leaving to follow in the footsteps of his famous father Brian and take over as manager of Championship club Derby County.
He subsequently served as manager of Sheffield United, where he was voted LMA FA Cup Manager of the Year in 2014, for United’s run to the semis. He returned to Burton Albion in December 2015, leading the club to promotion to the Championship.
