Burton take Derby keeper Ross Atkins on loan
Burton Albion have signed goalkeeper Ross Atkins on a season-long loan from Derby County.
The 21-year-old had been on trial with the Brewers and featured in two pre-season friendlies.
Burton boss Paul Peschisolido said: "Ross has come in and shown he is a good and reliable goalkeeper."
Prior to Atkins' arrival at the Pirelli Stadium, the Brewers' only recognised keeper was 48-year-old goalkeeping coach Kevin Poole.
Atkins spent most of last season at Blue Square Bet Premier side Tamworth before being recalled to Pride Park for a brief spell as cover.
