If you have ever kicked a ball competitively for Fleetwood, then you are welcome to attend the Past Players Association's monthly meet-up at Poolfoot Farm this Thursday.

Fleetwood's football team has had several names and reincarnations over the years, but whether you played back in the 1960s or 70s, or hung up your boots more recently, the association welcomes all.

The group meets on the first Thursday of every month from 10am at the club's Poolfoot Farm training base to share a tea or coffee, a laugh and to reminisce.

Ex-players are encouraged to bring any memorabilia, past articles, match reports or anything associated with the club to stir up memories.

The association's administrator Tony Collier has urged anyone who used to play for the club to pop in and share their memories as he stressed the importance of keeping the club's past alive.

Tony said: "It is very much a social thing, primarily to get everyone together, reminisce and have a few laughs.

"I think it is very important. We have got a history of over 100 years. I think it is key to make everyone feel a part of the club as a whole."
