Andy Hall with the legends
When the Former Players Association was contacted by Christine Anders of the Honeyrose Foundation, a charity that provides wishes for people suffering from terminal and life threatening illnesses, we were delighted to help in trying to provide a "wish" for a Corby based Albion fan. Andy Hall and his daughter Emma were guests at the Southampton game, his wish was to have a tour of the Ground and to meet a Former Player. Thanks to the Commercial Department a tour of the Ground was arranged prior to the game and then because the Association had a successful negotiation in acquiring the Regis Suite for this season we invited Andy & Emma as our Guests so that he could fulfil his final wish and that was meet some Former Players. They met Paul Raven in the Richardson Suite and in the Regis Suite Andy met Ray Wilson, John Lovatt, Joe Mayo, Tony Brown and his hero Cyrille Regis. The Association Chairman Ray Wilson along with Tony Brown presented Andy with a Former Player's tie as a memory of his wishes coming true.
The Honeyrose Foundation is based in St Helens and last year celebrated it's 10th anniversary. This year it has won the Bill Shankly Community Award.
We hope Andy had a really enjoyable wish come true and that both he & Emma enjoyed the day in the company of these Legends.
