SO, the 25 years anniversary of our famous cup victory is coming up, with a gathering taking place at the Nailcote Hall Hotel on Friday 20th April, with a small amount of tickets still available.
It promises to be a great night, with all the players and staff from that memorable weekend attending the event, as well as the Doncaster fixture the following day at the Ricoh Arena. There will be a chance to get old programmes signed and the FA Cup will also be there, so a chance to get a photo with the famous trophy will be worth the entrance fee.
It still doesn't seem like 25 years to me, when me and a group of my mates all bought season tickets, prior to the quarter finals, as we all knew something special was afoot that year. There was a feeling throughout the City that something was going to happen and so it proved. We also sang a song that day "We're gonna score in a minute" which I have never heard before or since. It was as if it was meant to be, we written that it was going to be our day.
No doubt everyone have their own memories of that day, or weekend with the open top bus tour through the City on Sunday, and there are many stories I can remember from our weekend in London, most of which are logged and seem to come back every April, on cup final day.
If you want to recall your own memories, or just want to get a chance to meet the lads again, then give the hotel a call on: 024 7646 6174 and get yourself down there, tickets are priced at £75 each, with all proceeds going to the players.
