Kevin Dixon was given a fantastic ovation by Pools supporters when he was introduced prior to kick-off at Victoria Park on Saturday.
The former Pools star scored the winning goal the last time Derby County had visited The Vic in the FA Cup and he was back at the weekend as our guest for the latest meeting.
Before getting a great reception on the pitch, Dixon had spent time sharing his memories of his career at Pools in a special talk-in held with Phil Dunn in the Club’s Centenary Lounge.
And at half time, the 1980s hero mixed with supporters and sponsors in our Executive Boxes to talk about the game and reminisce about his time in a Pools shirt.
We’ll be looking to hold further pre-match events in our Centenary Lounge during the rest of the season so keep an eye on the Official Website for more details.
