I must write something about Stuart Pearce.
What a guy. He has given up his time to attend two events for us (in less than a month) and on both occasions he has made a huge impression on everyone there. 350 people in Northampton and 250 last night – and all gave him a standing ovation.
I was lucky enough to sit next to him last night and have the almost surreal experience of chatting to him through the evening. It is one memory I will cherish.
I thought it was great when he was asked about Brian Clough – what an experience to have played for so long under that genius – and also when a Spurs fan asked him about the 1991 Cup Final – Pearcey got quite animated.
Just seeing the joy on people’s faces as they got their autograph or photo or simply shaked his hand said it all – a true Wealdstone legend – a true football legend.
We are very luck to have the calibre of former players who have made it big time that we do – it is all part of what makes us the Club that we are.
