The night after Bradford City’s JPT trip to Hartlepool, you can get your claret and amber kicks on Wednesday 10 October by attending one of two excellent events.
Event one – An Evening with Bobby Campbell
@McCall Suite, Valley Parade, Bradford
Mick Shackleton told Width of a Post:
“The evening will be in the theme of the TV programme ‘This is your Life’ and will feature ex-players telling of their time with Campbell. The list of ex-players expected to attend includes – Les Chapman, Mega Ellis, Greg Abbott, Peter Jackson, Stuart McCall, Dave Evans, John Hawley, John Hendrie, Terry Yorath, Terry Dolan, Ian Ormondroyd and Don Goodman (subject to SKY commitments).
“This is to tie in with the launch of Bobby Campbell’s book – They Don’t Make Them Like Him Anymore; written by Paul Firth, which Bobby will be signing copies of during the night.
“Entrance is free when you purchase the book at £12, otherwise it’s £2 (no pay on the night). A Pie and Peas supper will be available on the night at £3. Bobby Campbell signed merchandise will be offered through a raffle on the night.
“Due to the current demand the event has moved from the Bantams Bar and will be held in the McCall Suite. The event has currently attracted over 240 people.
“Further details and entrance to the event can be obtained through the http://www.friendsofbcfc.co.uk website.”
Event two – Meet James Meredith
@Herriots Hotel, Skipton
The first Skipton and Craven Bantams Supporters Club meeting of the season will begin at 7.15pm. James Meredith, their sponsored player, will be guest for the evening. Entrance on the night will be £2 for members and £4 for non-members. Membership, at a cost of £5 for the 2012/13 season, will be available on the night.
(And if you’re going to event two, you can buy me a birthday pint 😉 )
