In previous postings we have been featuring some of the best pics from the CCFPA’s collection of photos* of the memorable CCFPA/CCFC Legends Day 2017 held last Saturday. As well as our own 10th Anniversary Legends Day event all Sky Blues fans were celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the 1966-67 squad achieving first division status for the club’s first time and also the 30th Anniversary of CCFC’s 1986-87 team lifting the F.A.Cup for the first time too. Members of both squads were present with their respective trophies.
Last time, we focused on our oldest CCFC former player veterans – the stalwarts of the 1950s who laid the foundations for the club’s rise to the top (and some like CCFPA members Mick Kearns, Ron Farmer and George Curtis went all the way to the top). Now we continue illustrating the traditional half-time fun and games pitchside as over 10,000 Sky Blues fans gave their Ricoh welcome to our 1960s ‘stars of the past’.
Above and below we illustrate the journey to the centre circle of some of the following stars of the Sixties: Roy Barry, Jeff Blockley, Dietmar Bruck, Chris Cattlin, Bill Glazier, Colin Holder, Dennis Mortimer, Dennis Oakes, Dudley Roberts, John Sillett, Bill Tedds, John Tudor, Alan Turner and Bob Wesson.
All our FPs from over five decades of playing excellence then gathered in the centre circle for their customary team photo (featured last time) mirrored by the relatively new tradition of a team photo taken of the current Sky Blue team on Legends Day (at top)!
Tomorrow we will profile players from the remaining decades of the Sky Blues teams of the past (1970s onwards) Keep checking back on this site for more photos in the coming days.
