CLUB: The trip has been fantastic

Chairman Tom Piatak following Burton postponement

14 February 2024

Last night, we caught up with Tom Piatak, before himself and Patty travelled back to the USA.

Speaking after our Sky Bet League One clash was called off, he said: “The trip has been fantastic. Patty and I have been here for two-and-a-half weeks, spending a lot of time getting to know the staff, which has been very important and doing some things behind-the-scenes.

“The performance on the pitch has not been there, but I was really looking forward to tonight. I thought tonight was going to be the breakthrough, so this is crushing for us.

“We’re heading to the airport tomorrow morning, Patty and I are flying back to the States but Jenna [Piatak] and Nick [DeMasi] will still be here. 

“I was really looking for a result tonight and I think the team was ready.

“I have all the confidence in Jenna and Nick, they’ll be here Saturday for the game against Cambridge, which should be a fantastic match.

“We wish we could be here, and actually thought about cancelling the flight and rescheduling, but we do need to be back over there for a little bit.

“I just told Paul [Simpson], this is a shame, but Patty and I are just a flight away and we can be here, if needed for any reason."
