The 40th Birthday of The Hopper’s move to Lightfoot Green was duly celebrated on Saturday 14 September by over 150 ex players. Near record bar takings would seem to bear testament that a good time was had by all.
Ex players living in Australia, Canada and Belgium were present and the best excuse for non-attendance was Ian Foster’s who explained he was King of Siam for the day.
The feedback received has been that we should make a players reunion an annual event and therefore there will be a similar do at the first home game of next season. In the meantime if you come across any ex players with whom we have lost contact please forward details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
