Town's former players to gather at Poolfoot Farm this Thursday

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town's Former Players Association are set to meet at Poolfoot Farm this Thursday morning for their monthly meet.

Kicking off at 10am on Thursday 6 June, new and current members are welcome down to the session, where players from recent decades get together, talk about the good old days whilst supping on a cuppa tea or a coffee.

Since forming, these monthly meetings have gone from strength to strength, so if you used to play for Fleetwood Town, why not come this Thursday and get a feel of the vibe within the group.

During the last meeting, former player Reg Smallbone took centre stage and talked about his career at Fleetwood Town, whilst telling funny anecdotes from times gone by with some of his former teammates in the room. Reg was full of praise for Club President, Jim Betmead - and talked about his willingness to never give a loose ball up, whilst also being a nightmare for defenders back in the day.

With regular Quiz Master Kevin Byrne not in attendance last month, it was up to up the Vice Chairman to ask the questions to the room, with the theme being old TV shows and movies from years gone by - it's fair to say some in the room did a very good Steptoe and Son impression (you had to be there to see it!)

With a team picture taken, the meeting finished off with warm brews and conversations between those inside Poolfoot Farm, with many looking back at old photos and reminising for times gone by.

We look forward to welcoming new and currently members back on Thursday 6 June 2024 for a 10am kick-off with more fun and games to take place! Hope to see many more this time round.
