RETURN OF THE '88 BOYS

31 October 2016

1988 reunion on 18th November...

On Friday 18th November, we will be hosting a reunion of the famous 1988 Walsall team. 

Tommy Coakley’s Saddlers finished third in the Old Division Three during the 1987/88 season and won promotion in the play-offs after thrashing Bristol City 4-0 in a replay. 

Club legend David Kelly scored a hat-trick, with Phil Hawker also on target in front of more than 13,000 at Fellows Park – a fitting way to mark our centenary year!

The Saddlers also played a Manchester United team featuring the likes of Bryan Robson and Paul McGrath in a special 100-year anniversary fixture.

Most of that squad are already confirmed for the event (full list below), so book now to avoid disappointment! 

Tickets for the evening are just £15 for season ticket holders and £20 for non-season ticket holders. 

The price includes a pie, chips and a pint. There will also be an opportunity to meet the players and ask them questions in a Q&A.
