CCFPA’s Table 3



The Association was proud to sponsor the 30th Anniversary reunion of the “Boys of ’87” at Nailcote Hall last Saturday.

The packed Nailcote Marquee

Every man jack of the 1987 F.A.Cup winning team and management present at the event have been long-time CCFPA members and good friends of the Association and we were very pleased to renew aand further deepen our connections with the squad. The links have been facilitated and cemented by one of the key team members (and scorer) at the Wembley win, Dave Bennett who is a committee member of the Association and who, together with Association vice-chairman Billy Bell had much to do with making the reunion both happen and become the obviously enjoyable event for all participants! Billy acted as emcee for the evening.

We were pleased to see Dave, Cyrille Regis, Trevor Peake, |Keith Houchen, Steve Ogrizovic, Greg Downs, Nick Pickering and their cup winning gaffer John Sillett pictured below at Nailcote again. We were naturally sad some of their former colleagues unable to make it for a variety of good reasons.

CCFPA took a table of sixteen, a mixture of former players, committee members, associate members and their guests to watch the fun and form an important part of the evening’s festivities in a Nailcote marquee bedecked in Sky Blue with around 150 people enjoying the entertainment (including other Associate members) and Sky Blues fans from across the UK and abroad (including Finland!).
