City legends to attend 30th anniversary celebration event

The Trust is to stage a very special event in February to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Cardiff City’s promotion to the old Second Division.

Several Bluebirds legends from the 1982-83 promotion team have already indicated they will be delighted to attend and we will announce a full list of guests shortly.

The event, which will take place at the Cardiff City Stadium on Wednesday, February 13th (7pm for 7.30pm), has been organised by the Trust’s membership group and it is expected to be very popular.

It will follow the same format as the Real Madrid and Leeds evenings, compered by BBC Wales football correspondent Rob Phillips, a great supporter of the Trust. There will also be a quiz and raffle on the evening.

For those younger fans among the stars of the 1982-83 team, which finished runners-up in Division Three were Dave Bennett, who went onto FA Cup glory with Coventry City, his brother Gary Bennett, who later starred for Sunderland, Phil Dwyer, Roger Gibbins and striker Jeff Hemmerman.

John Isaacson, the Trust’s board member with responsibility for membership, said: “Everyone who came along to the Real Madrid and Leeds evenings really enjoyed themselves and we’re certain there is going to be huge demand to hear from stars who played during the1982-83 promotion season. Fans are guaranteed a fantastic evening of football chat and we’re delighted that Rob Phillips has once again agreed to compere the evening.”

Tickets will be free to members of the Supporters’ Trust and are available to non-members for just £5.00. If you would like to reserve tickets contact Tickets are reserved for Trust members and their guests until Friday, January 11th when they will go on general sale.
