We have planned another of our reunion days for the visit of Calne Town this Saturday (16 December)
Former managers, players and officials are welcomed back to the club to join old and new supporters. The plans have expanded this year with the match at 3pm being followed by a live performance from singer Ian Kenna at 7.30pm by which time it is hoped that many of the wives, partners and players who are still appearing for other clubs will be joining the celebrations. The day coincides with the Club's Christmas Jumper Day competition so everyone is being encouraged to dress up and there are prizes for the best effort.
We have been in touch with numerous former players including Tony Ricketts, Graham Day and David Mogg from the Abbotonians era – Ian Hyett, Alan Foggie, Steve Pruett, Steve Painter, Mark Pillinger, Martin Rennie and Andy Boulton from The O's title winning 1980’s glory days (pictured) and some of the lesser known people like Paul Corbett, Steve Bignell, Andy Carlisle and Lee ‘the fly’ Jones have all been contacted. Last year was a great success and we hope to repeat it again in 2017.
The Club would really like to locate legendary goalkeeper Jammer (James Davidson) and if anybody knows how to track him down, pack him in a car and deliver him to the club on Saturday it would really be appreciated.
