Joined Arsenal (For the third time), July 5, 2012

Born in Camden Town, north London, Burton enjoyed previous spells with Arsenal as both a youth player and coach.
 
Joining the Club as a schoolboy, Burton was an integral part of the Arsenal’s FA Youth Cup-winning side in 1971. He later joined the Gunners as a youth coach in 1979, and was instrumental in bringing through the hugely-successful generation of players that included Tony Adams, David Rocastle, Michael Thomas, Paul Merson and Martin Keown. He was also a first-team coach during his time with the Club, notably working with Don Howe in the mid-1980s.
 
Following his initial spell at the Club, Burton forged a successful coaching career with Wimbledon, where he spent time as manager, and then with Watford, Cardiff City and West Bromwich Albion.

Before his return to Arsenal, Burton worked as assistant manager at Sheffield Wednesday, helping to guide the Yorkshire side to promotion to the Championship.
 
Burton is in charge of the Club’s Under-21 side, but also heads up the Arsenal team which is participating for the first time in this season’s NextGen Series, the elite European Under-19s competition.
 
Working closely with head of youth development Liam Brady, Burton will also influence coaching strategies across all of the Club’s youth development age groups.
