A special word for a special son

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.

Now no longer with my Wealdstone FC obligations so freed up to enjoy more horse racing. Aiming to blog daily on something that catches my eye, maybe the big race that day, maybe racing news, maybe something else. Please join the conversations
