Stars of Pools’ 1990/91 promotion-winning squad are set to be reunited later this month at an event in the town which is raising money for Hartlepool & District Hospice.
After the success of last summer’s 2004/05 reunion event, organisers Phil Dunn and Andy Wilson are certain that this year’s offering will prove just as enjoyable.
The majority of players and staff from the memorable campaign will be in attendance for the Reunion Dinner, which takes place on Friday 20th May at Seaton Carew Social Club.
Funds raised will be donated directly to Hartlepool & District Hospice and Pools legend Brian Honour popped along there on Monday to collect a signed ball which will form part of the auction on the night.
“We chose the Hospice because it’s something that is close to everyone’s hearts in the town,” explained Dunn.
“It costs around £6,500 every day to keep our Hospice going and it helps so many people that whatever we can raise we want to give to them and do our bit.
“The night should be another cracker with all the players and staff there from the era to share their memories of that promotion and, personally I can’t wait.
“I only missed two games of the 1990/91 season so it’s going to be great to look back on it with the heroes who took us to that glorious promotion.”
There are still a limited amount of tickets available for the event, which are priced at £20 and can be bought by calling Andy on 07760 886 715 or Phil on 07896 779 471.
