Charlton Athletic record outfield appearance holder and Club Ambassador Keith Peacock says the upcoming Down Memory Lane evening “should be a really interesting and fun night” as the event on Thursday 15 March approaches.
Down Memory Lane, which is the latest in a series of events organised by the 25th Anniversary Committee, will take place in the Millennium Suite at The Valley.
It will see four Addicks icons – Lennie Lawrence, Chris Powell, Steve Gritt and former Chairman Roger Alwen – sit down with supporters to answer questions.
“There will be a lot of other players coming along as well”, says Keith, who confirmed that Bob Bolder, Garry Nelson, Simon Webster, John Bumstead, Kevin Lisbie and Jon Fortune will be among those in the audience.
“They’ll probably want to ask their own questions to their old managers, like why they were left out of the side or why they didn’t get enough money in those times”, he added.
“I’ve been very pleased with the celebrations this season. Every event has been beyond what we had imagined and this particular event will see Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) share the proceeds with Prostate Cancer UK, so we hope to make a few extra pounds for the fund”, he said.
Keith, who has been involved in the organisation of Down Memory Lane as part of the 25th Anniversary Committee, also managed a team to victory at the Legends United match in September.
Doors open at 7pm, with the event getting underway at 7.45 and expected to finish before 10. It will include a 15-minute interval.
Tickets for Down Memory Lane are priced at £15, which includes entry and a drink, and all proceeds will be split between CACT and Prostate Cancer UK. Tickets can be purchased online by clicking here.
