Fleetwood Town's Former Players Association will be back at Poolfoot Farm this Thursday morning for their penultimate meeting of the year.

Last time out, John Stiles - Son of 1966 World Cup winner Nobby Stiles - was at Poolfoot Farm to discuss his campaign for dementia, a topic close to John's heart with his Dad passing away with the illness a few years ago. This was a very informative talk, educating all those in attendance and making people aware of the impact of head injuries and heading the ball in the past as well as in the currently game.

John also talked about his Dad's memories, more so around the 1966 World Cup which saw the Three Lions crowned World Champions on home soil. With a match against Argentina, John talked about the roughness of the game, Nobby's teammates playing tricks on him and much more from his time at Manchester United and the support shown by him England manager, Sir Alf Ramsey.

With this meeting to be held on Thursday 2 November 2023 from 10am until 12pm, the doors will be open for new members to get a taste of what happens during the monthly meetings, as well as to catch up with former teammates and friends from times gone by - it's one you won't want to miss.
