Barry Town Supporters Committee to hold '100 Years of Barry Town’ celebration event
9:00am Friday 19th October 2012 in Sport
THE Barry Town Supporters Committee has confirmed details of its ‘100 Years of Barry Town’ celebration event, to take place at the Angel Hotel in Cardiff on Friday, November 16 (7.30pm).
Attendees will be met on arrival by a special ‘100 Years of Barry Town’ exhibition of memories and memorabilia – with old match-worn shirts, international caps, vintage programmes, trophies, pennants, classic photographs and more on show.
They will then be treated to a lavish three-course meal, interspersed with specially-made film footage documenting memorable Barry Town matches and goals from across a century of football.
The BTSC is extending an open invitation to anyone who played for or managed a Barry Town side in the past 100 years to come and celebrate this milestone occasion. A number of players and coaches have already confirmed their attendance.
There will be photo opportunities with many of the footballers present, and supporters old and new are welcome to come and meet their heroes of yesteryear.
An added attraction to the evening will be the former Manchester United, Rangers, AC Milan and England midfielder Ray Wilkins.
Recently on the management team at Chelsea and a renowned Sky Sports pundit, Wilkins will be speaking at length about his career and fielding questions from the audience.
The glittering event will also play host to a sporting auction, with proceeds helping the non-profit, BTSC community enterprise to preserve Barry Town football into its second century.
Tickets for the event are on sale now at £40 per head, or £400 for a table of ten.
