Ex-City skipper joins 30th anniversary celebration

Jimmy Mullen, who skippered Cardiff City to promotion in 1982-83, will join a 30th anniversary celebration being held next week to mark the promotion to the old Second Division.

Jimmy is the ninth player to accept an invitation to attend the special Trust event at the Cardiff City Stadium on Wednesday, February 13th.

He joins Dave and Gary Bennett, Jeff Hemmerman, Roger Gibbins, Phil Dwyer, John Lewis, Linden Jones and Paul Giles.

The bar opens at 7pm, with a short quiz at 7.30pm. The Q&A is scheduled to start at 8pm.It will follow the same format as the hugely popular Real Madrid and Leeds evenings, compered by BBC Wales football correspondent Rob Phillips, a great supporter of the Trust.

Tickets are free to members of the Supporters’ Trust and are available to non-members for just £5. Tickets can be reserved by contacting members@ccfctrust.org.  Non-members who buy a ticket for the event will be able to join the Trust from just £7 on the evening.

There are unlikely to be many opportunities – if any – in the future to meet so many members of the promotion winning squad.
