Fans have been reacting to the news that Academy of Football product Joe Powell has joined Burton Albion permenantly for an undisclosed fee.

Supporters were distraught over the 21-year-old, who had looked to be a real one to watch for the future when he made his first-team debut against Macclesfield last season.

That would be the only senior opportunity that the East End lad would get and it’s not like he didn’t take advantage of it either, grabbing himself two assists in an exciting cameo on the night – you may also remember Grady Diangana’s performance on that evening.

Powell had been at the club since he was eight and impressed throughout at youth level, especially in the under-23s where he registered 14 goals and 13 assists in 64 appearances in the Premier League 2.

Based on this, the decision seems baffling and fans are certainly not happy to see the back of the versatile talent…
