Burton Albion defender Jake Buxton is pleased to be back at the club where he tasted his first bit of success as a player.
Buxton signed a one-year-deal with the Brewers on Wednesday, a move that brings him back to the club he joined from Mansfield Town in 2008.
Buxton made 44 appearances in one season at the Pirelli Stadium, before following manager Nigel Clough to Derby County after helping Albion gain promotion to the Football League for the first time in 2009.
Clough afforded him the opportunity to play at Derby, alongside current Brewers Shaun Barker, Tom Naylor and Stephen Bywater.
But Buxton returns to the Pirelli Stadium a different player, and character, to when he left.
He arrives more than 150 league matches wiser and with the experience of a play-off final run - which ultimately ended in heartbreak - and battles at both ends of the division that will surely add valuable know-how to an already esteemed back-line.
Yet Buxton, for all his career accolades and experience in playing for Derby and Wigan Athletic, still speaks about Burton's well-documented rise through the leagues as if he missed out on something special.
The Brewers' latest feat - survival in the second-tier - is just the latest remarkable tale in the club's meteoric rise of the last couple of decades - something the defender wants to ensure keeps happening.
And Buxton even branded the Pirelli Stadium faithful as the "luckiest supporters around" after their side's ascent through the football pyramid.
"It's unbelievable," said Buxton when asked about the Brewers' rise through the leagues over the years.
"I've not got many regrets in football but it is something that, every year when I was away from here, they seemed to have success that you wanted to be part of.
"The supporters, I think, are the luckiest supporters going because they've had success since 20 years ago.
"It's a good club, run well, managed well. The appointments they've had over the course of the years management wise have all fitted well, and the players have all been great.
"There's a couple who have stepped up with them, with Championship experience last year and hopefully they'll do well again next year."
Indeed, it is hard to think of too many supporters who have basked in varied and ongoing success like the Brewers' fans have in recent times - as Buxton recognises.
As he said on the day he signed for the second time at Burton, he feels like giving something back to the club that gave him the opportunity to play for one of English footbal's biggest clubs.
You can't argue against what Buxton has said. The signings they have made already this summer - including the record acquisition of the Scottish Premiership's top scorer Liam Boyce - have sent out a real statement of intent.
It is clear that Burton holds a special place in Buxton's heart, and he is exactly the type of player that Clough wants on his side.
What's also clear is that Buxton wants to pay the Brewers back for giving him the platform to shine in the league.
And there would be no better way than to do that than to ensure another season of Championship football next term.
