Lloyd, Micky & Oggy

Billy leads the Q&A

There was a packed house at CCFPA member Lloyd McGrath‘s Hawkes Mill Club on Friday night as they witnessed a night of great nostalgia as fellow ’87 boys (all Association members) Steve Ogrizovic, Dave Bennett, Micky Gynn together with Lloyd himself reminisced about the 1987 FA Cup success.

Proceedings started with a round by round 40 minute video created by CCFPA commitee members Dean Nelson and presented by Dean and CCFPA vice chair Billy Bell. Compere for the evening Billy compared the evening in his usual style and actually came up with some new jokes !! Our former players, each one a hero of the 1986-87 F.A.Cup campaign, not least the Wembley final, came up with some great stories from back in the day and answered many questions from the audience. Lloyd also recalled how he broke Paul Gascoigne’s arm after ‘Gazza’ had ‘hit Lloyd’s head with his arm’.

The FA Cup trophy was also on show for a photo opportunity with donations going to CCFPA. Dean’s wife Debbie was on hand to do the raffle which raised over £250.

Everyone enjoyed the meals on offer and the drinks went down well too. Micky had to leave soon after the night ended as he had to be up at 4.30am for his work.

The Sky Blue crowd had the chance to get autographs and have pictures taken with their heroes and holding the cup too. A great night was had by all with ‘The Sky Blues Song’ and ‘Go For It’ being sung at the end.  This will be the first of several Q&A sessions so keep your eye out for future events on this site.
