Speaking after the event, Damon Searle part of the side that saw City to promotion that season and now works in the commercial department at Cardiff City Stadium, said: “It was a fantastic evening for the Cardiff City Supporters Trust to arrange and it was great to see some of the boys again.
“It was like we’d never been apart really. The camaraderie amongst all the boys was there for all to see and I think it shows what a tight unit we were when we gained promotion from the third division all those years ago.
“It was also great to see such a good turn out on the night to share their memories with us. I’d like to thank all involved that helped make this night become such a success.”
The Cardiff City Supporters Trust’s John Isaacson said: “I’d like to pass on the Trust’s thanks to all the players for making Thursday night such a great success.
“It was very enjoyable and it was great to see the camaraderie amongst all the players involved. Thanks to Damon in helping get such a good turnout from the former players on the night.”
