WE asked for your Wembley memories and you responded by the dozen.

More than 100 pictures were sent in to the Mail by Brewers fan who headed to the ‘home of football’ to watch Burton Albion play Fleetwood in the League Two play-off final.

Although the result did not favour the Brewers, these pictures show how much the town enjoyed their day in the footballing sun.

Whether it be a snap outside the famous stadium or a cheeky selfie in the stands, Albion fans headed on to Facebook and Twitter to send in their pictures from the big day.

Meanwhile, Sgt Dave Hine, of London’s Metropolitan Police Service, complemented Albion fans on their behaviour during the game.

He said: “This was a family event with many of children

getting dressed up and having their faces painted.

“At the end of the game, I was standing near to the Fleetwood turnstiles watching the supporters leave.

“At one point I saw a small group of Burton supporters walking towards a small group of Fleetwood fans standing on the concourse.

My first thought was that there was going to be a confrontation as I see this many times after the final whistle.

“The Burton supporters went straight up to the Fleetwood supporters and began to shake their hands and congratulate them. It was fantastic to see, so congratulations to both sets of supporters.

“It was a pleasure to work the game and talk to so many fans who had a great day out.”

A slideshow of all the pictures is available online at burtonmail.co.uk
