Do you remember where you were on May 17, 1998? If you were alive, lived in Cheltenham and had a passing interest in football you would almost certainly have been at Wembley for a historic day.
And now, 20 years on from the Robins’ FA Trophy success we are inviting you to celebrate with Cheltenham Town legend and Wembley goal hero Jason Eaton and his teammates.
On Thursday, May 17 the key men involved in the Wembley win against Southport will be joining us to watch a rerun of the game and talk about their memories of the famous day in Robins history.
Doors open at 7pm. The match will kick-off on the big screen in the Premier Suite at Whaddon Road at 7.45pm, with the usual match-day bar food and drink available.
BBC Radio Gloucestershire’s Ian Randall – who presented and commentated at Wembley in 1998 – will compere the evening and you will have the chance to ask your questions to the men involved.
Entry will be FREE to Robins Trust members. Non Trust members can sign up on the night for £5 to gain entrance and receive all the other benefits of being a Trust member.
Join us to look back on a landmark date in Cheltenham Town history to celebrate what was then our greatest ever moment.
A step too VAR?
The introduction of the Video Assistant Referee has caused controversy at the top levels of football and is sure to be a talking point at this summer’s World Cup.
Following on from our successful Evening with a Referee last summer, former Premier League and FA Cup final referee Chris Foy will be returning to Whaddon Road to talk about VAR.
Chris will be joining us on Tuesday, June 19 from 7pm – the day after England’s World Cup opener – for what is sure to be an informative and entertaining evening.
Like the Wembley: 20 celebrations the event will be FREE to Robins Trust members – and once again you will be able to sign up on the night to gain entry.
Please contact the Trust’s own referee, Nathan Mattick on firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place for these events.
