Regular readers of this season's match programme, UP THE POOL !, will already be aware that this season is the 40th anniversary of the Pool's last promotion to the top flight of English football, which was achieved on a memorable night at Deepdale on the 13th April 1970 when a Fred Pickering hat-trick won the game for the Pool to not only gain promotion for the Pool but also consign PNE to relegation to the 3rd Division. What a night that was for the thousands of Pool fans present at that memorable game.
A Celebration Dinner is taking place here at BFC on Friday 16th April 2010 to honour the players in that glorious season.
Thirty invitations have been sent out to the players who played there part that season and also the 1st Division season of 1970/71. They will be our honoured guests at a night where great entertainment and nostalgia is in prospect.
A 4 course meal will be served, a 30 minute DVD showing Pool action from around the late 60s / early 70s will be shown, some fabulous auction and raffle prizes will be on offer.
The event will be compered by Radio Lancashire's Ian Chisnall and Ian Holloway will be there.
All the profit's from the night will be passed over to The Jimmy Armfield Statue Appeal so it's all for a great cause.
