Wembley winners reunite tonight

Bristol City’s Wembley-winning skipper Bobby Hutchinson will be getting together with team-mates from the 1986 Freight Rover Trophy final tonight.

The Scot, now aged 66, is to attend a reunion of the side who beat Bolton Wanderers 3-0 in City’s first ever appearance beneath the Twin Towers.

It will take place at the Three Lions pub, Bedminster, and is open to City fans free of charge, starting at 8pm.

Among the other members of the Wembley squad from 33 years ago expected to attend are goalscorers Glyn Riley, who netted twice, and Howard Pritchard, along with Alan Walsh, Andy Llewellyn, Gary Marshall and Micky Tanner.

Highlights of the final will be played on screens and copies of Richard Latham’s book ‘Wembley Wonders’, which tells the story of the Freight Rover Trophy success, will be on sale.

Hutchinson, who missed the launch of the book at Ashton Gate last November due to illness, said: “I can’t wait to meet up with the lads and some of the supporters again. It was a day I shall never forget."

Wembley Wonders features new interviews with all the players involved and is packed with photographs, memorabilia and behind the scenes stories from the 1986 cup run.
