Middlesbrough Reunion Tickets On Sale From Thursday

Hednesford Town Football Club Supporters Association have announced ticketing details for their planned commemoration evening to mark the fifteenth anniversary of The Pitmen’s famous FA Cup run. The club, enjoying unbridled success in the Vauxhall Conference at the time, shocked the Football League with victories against Blackpool at Bloomfield Road in the Second Round and York City at Keys Park in the Third Round before being drawn at home against Premier League giants, Middlesbrough, in Round Four. Police advice meant the venue was swapped and an army of 6,000 fans, young and old, travelled North East to the Riverside Stadium to see their heroes feature prominently on Match of the Day, taking the lead through a Joe O’Connor strike, before gallantly losing 3-2. The vast majority of the squad, including former backroom staff, are expected to attend the event and Hednesford Town fans from around the area are invited to take part in what will be a misty-eyed reminisce of the greatest day the Club has ever seen. Tickets for the celebration, due to be held at Keys Park on Saturday 18th Ferbruary 7.30pm, are £12 for SA Members and £14 for non-SA Members and can be purchased at the Supporters AGM on Thursday night from 7.30pm. Supporters will also be able to purchase tickets in Strikers Bar before the home fixtures against Northwich Victoria, North Ferriby United and Marine. The price includes entry to the event, a hot pork buffet and the chance to spend an evening sharing in the nostalgia of 1996/97 alongside fellow supporters and The Pitmen’s most famous team with guest speakers, photo albums and a re-run of the highlights of every goal during the campaign. In the run up to the event any person interested in purchasing a ticket can also contact Chris Brewerton on 07919912811, by email on chrisbrewerton@hotmail.co.uk or by visiting www.htfcsa.co.uk for more details.
