CCST EVENT | A NIGHT OF MEMORIES
3 years 7 months ago
Rare BBC Match of the Day footage from more than forty years ago will be screened at an evening in Pontypridd organised by the Cardiff City Supporters' Trust.
Club historian Richard Shepherd will host the evening at the Rose and Crown pub in High Street, Graig, on Thursday, January 21, starting at 7.30pm.
Alongside Richard will be Peter Jackson, who covered Cardiff City for the South Wales Echo during the Jimmy Scoular era. Bluebirds legends Gary Bell, Bobby Woodruff and Leighton Phillips have accepted invitations to attend.
Trust vice chair David Craig said: "Richard will tell the story of his discovery of the films, and the restoring of film which everyone thought was lost.
"Excerpts from the restored film covering the period between 1969 and 1972 will be shown in chronological order, with Richard giving a brief introduction to each one and then opening a discussion with ex-players. There is a total of forty minutes of restored film."
All the matches are from the Match of the Day Wales opt-outs at the time.
