Many of the greats who have worn the famous Light and Dark Blue colours arrived for lunch but then split into groups to meet as many fans in as many locations as practical. The Ex-Players were announced on the pitch before kick off and then watched the match from Block V of the Main Stand. We welcomed back the Club’s former Press Officer Alan Hutchinson (pictured right) to assist with this.
Tony “Bodger” Horseman and David “Jesus” Carroll delivered the match ball to the centre spot in time for kick off.
There was plenty of other activities going on, especially for the youngsters with face painting (free of charge) and the release of 125 balloons from the centre circle.
