EXCLUSIVE: Ex-admin worker denies going into Pirelli changing room as Burton Albion players were semi-naked

Written byLAURA HAMMOND

A MEMBER of staff at Burton Albion was alleged to have wandered into the dressing room as players were changing, a tribunal has been told.

Kerry Miller (pictured right) is said to have walked in unannounced as the players were undressed on at least 15 occasions during her time at the club, the panel heard yesterday.

Ms Miller, who worked in a sales, support and administration role at the Pirelli Stadium, has denied the claims, and says unfair treatment by her employer caused her to leave her job early last year.

The tribunal, taking place in Leicester, is investigating claims, brought by Ms Miller, of constructive dismissal, sexual discrimination and harassment.

It is due to last for five days.

Yesterday, the panel was told players claimed Ms Miller went into the changing rooms at the Pirelli Stadium on a number of occasions.

It was also claimed she took on a number of other roles which put her in direct contact with the players, including serving their food.

At one point, in September 2012, club chairman Ben Robinson asked her to stop serving them and ‘concentrate on her own job’, the hearing was told.

Ms Miller, of Marchington, near Uttoxeter, said she went into the changing rooms on only four occasions, and that she knocked and shouted every time.

She said the claims made against her were ‘untrue’.

The tribunal continues.
