A record turnout of former players were present at Poolfoot Farm on Thursday for the April meeting of the Former Players Association.
Over 40 former Fleetwood Town players met and shared stories, pictures and memories at Town's training ground, before watching the first team train from the side of the pitch.
Malcolm Beech – who represented the club during the 1970’s – said on the meeting: “It’s super. You always wonder if you will ever run out of things to talk about, but every time we meet there’s always new pictures or stories, it really is nice nostalgia.
“The group is going from strength to strength and I’d urge any former player to come to one of the monthly meetings, and see what it’s all about.”
George McIntyre – who featured over 400 times for the club, in now aged 86 and loving meeting up with his former teammates: “I enjoy it so much. To come here to the training ground and see the modern facilities is unbelievable, I’m proud of where the club is now.
“I’d recommend the group to anyone of any age – they will recognise somebody, or somebody will recognise them.”
The next planned gathering will take place at Poolfoot Farm on Thursday 3rd May at 10am. Further details may be obtained from the Association’s Chairman, Stuart Murdoch, by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07921 934775.
