Fleetwood Town Former Players Association celebrated their second anniversary at Poolfoot Farm on Thursday morning.

Members of the Former Players Association met at Poolfoot Farm to celebrate the two year anniversary, and after being formed back in 2017, numbers have only gone up - with over 130 members signed up to the association.

The meeting started off with a speech from Stuart Murdoch, the chairman of the association, who thanked all for coming to this celebratory meeting and to all those who have made this group a huge success over the last 24 months.

With the sad passing of former player and first team coach Malcolm Denning, there was a minutes silence from all those in attendence to pay their respects to Malcolm.

Shortly after, Fleetwood Town chairman Andy Pilley spoke to the group about how proud he was of how far the association has come in two years, and invited all to the homes games this season at Highbury with the first being against AFC Wimbledon on August 10th 2019.
