25 Year FA Cup Semi Final vs Watford Reunion Dinner 2009
On Tuesday 15th September 2009, eight of the squad that played in 1983/84 Cup run that ended with that epic semi final game against Watford at Villa Park returned to Home Park for a 25 year reunion.
Former Players Gordon Nisbet, John Uzzell, Chris Harrison, Leigh Cooper, Kevin Hodges, Andy Rogers, Mark Rowe and Mike Ham joined former manager John Hore and assistant manager Martin Harvey for a 3 course meal in the Pyramid Suite prior to the home game against Watford.
At half time the Legends went on to the pitch to rapturous applause from the Green Army. To the chants of Sign Them On the Legends walked the perimeter of the pitch and accosted fellow Legend Geoff Crudgington who in his role as Goalkeeping Coach to the current team could not make the celebration.
After the game the legends returned to the Pyramid Suite to autograph limited edition commemorative programmes before being presented with a DVD of The Road to Villa Park by John Hore.
