Old Bordenians FC Reunion

on .

 The 2024 annual Old Bordenians FC veterans reunion was held on Monday 10th June 2024 at the Appleyard aka UK Paper aka Bowaters Sports Pavilion as usual.

As you can see from the photo there were 15 former players trying hard to remember names and places. It is nice to see familiar faces again but with just a few absentees with excuses ranging from “I’m on holiday in USA”  to  “I’m playing at a gig with a Dolly Parton lookalike”. Lots of usual questions were raised and various answers given – safe in the knowledge that we will be asking all the same questions and giving the same answers next year. It is very satisfying to note that even in these days we can get 15 players out for a reunion. Another problem is that the photographer has to move further back each year in order to get everyone in the picture. There was then a delay in the proceedings while those kneeling managed to get back to their feet.

All in all, it was another chaotic, and very enjoyable evening – to be repeated next year! (Thanks to Alan Snelling for this report)
