Fleetwood Town’s Former Players Association (FPA) made their way back to Poolfoot Farm on Thursday morning and had a special guest attend alongside 30 other members!
The meeting started in the usual fashion as all the members gathered around FPA Chairman Stuart Murdoch and Secretary Phil Brown as they did the opening remarks, mentioning all the events coming up, and even hosting this month’s quiz.
With questions ranging from goal scorers in the 1960s to cup runs in the 1980s, the members who attended had to rack their brains to remember this especially tough set of questions, but we think they all did very well – answering some questions before Phil could even finish reading them!
This month’s guest was Bob Denning, the son of Malcolm Denning who was a member of the FPA before his passing, and he looked over his father’s book collection, which is at each monthly meeting and would have brought back some old memories, we are sure.
After attending the meeting, he told the club: “It was fantastic to be here today, the club meant so much to my dad during his playing and coaching days and, importantly, in later life as well.
“The Former Players Association was a big part of his life and it’s great to speak to his friends here today and share stories about both his days playing football and general stories about his life. I’m glad the book collection is here for everyone to use as it keeps the memory of my dad living on within the group.”
The FPA would like to thank everyone who attended the meeting and wanted to say that they look forward to seeing you at Poolfoot Farm once again on Thursday 4 November at 10am.
