This Saturday, May 7th, will see a special reunion of Mellor FC players and officials. The idea came about a few months ago when various players, mainly from Mellor FC's golden era of 1985-87 began corresponding on Facebook. However, since then, other ex-players have been in touch and all are welcome to the gathering at the Marple Tavern, Cross Lane, Marple, SK6 6DJ at around 6pm. Among those coming are many of the people on the photograph displayed. This picture was taken after one of Mellor's two consecutive Rhodes Cup Final victories. Former manager Stu Lindsay and Gary Williams, however, cannot come and nor can Roy Purlan, whose plan to travel from his home in Cornwall has sadly been disrupted. If you are in the West Country, incidentally, you may want to stay at Roy's guesthouse. Dave Garnett is also unavailable and we have been unable to trace Martin Jackson. But there will be plenty of memories shared over a few pints and a curry.
