Former Players Association to hold midweek meeting in September

12 August 2019

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town’s Former Players Association are holding a special midweek meeting on Tuesday 10 September.

The event – which will be in the Parkside Suite at Highbury Stadium between 7pm and 10pm – is open to all former players who represented the Cod Army, as the group continue to grow their membership numbers.

Since being formed in 2017, the Former Players Association has grown to have over 100 members, where former players meet on a monthly basis at the club’s training ground, Poolfoot Farm.

Tony Collier, Former Players Association Secretary, added: “Whilst the number of members joining the FPA has grown steadily over the months, we have always been aware that many of our former players are either still playing with other clubs or have retired from playing but now have day jobs. This has meant that they are unable to attend our regular monthly morning meetings at Poolfoot.

“To address this issue we are holding this latest event at Highbury Stadium during early evening and we encourage both potential new recruits and current FPA members to attend the informal gathering. If you have played for the club during any era please turn up, announce to Stuart Murdoch, Phil Brown or me who you are and we shall do the rest. You will be made most welcome.

“We also plan to have a guided tour of the stadium as part of the event and for those requiring a liquid refreshment the bar will also be open. This is an exclusive event for our former players who have all played an important part in the history of the club.”

Members are encouraged to bring along any old photographs, programmes or memorabilia to the meeting.
