The day Peter Shilton signed for Forest back in 1977 was also the day Nottingham Forest fans in London created their supporters club branch.
It’s time to celebrate that landmark with the London Trickies’ 40th anniversary function which will be held at the Horseshoe pub, 24 Clerkenwell Close on Saturday, October 7 from 3.30pm.
Without shouting too much, we are expecting one or two Forest legends to join us on the day and it should be a great occasion.
We will also have a prize draw and one or two other surprises on the day. Watch this space for more details.
Tickets are now on sale through branch chairman Steve Moon priced at £20 which includes a free buffet. Please not this is an all-ticket event – you will need to buy a ticket in advance to get in.
However we are limited to a maximum of around 100 people. Initially sales are being limited to members only – please let Steve know ASAP if you would like to attend.
Also, we are keen for members to bring old shirts, scarves, posters, flags and the like along (ideally by 2pm so that we can decorate the room with as much Forest memorabilia as possible).
The Horseshoe pub is near Farringdon station.
Directions: From the station, walk along Turnmill Road to the junction with Clerkenwell Road, cross road, walk diagonally across Clerkenwell Green to reach Clerkenwell Close (there’s a large pub on the corner, think it’s called the Crown). Walk along the Close, it has an inverted ‘S’ bend with a church on your right and the Horseshoe is straight ahead on right hand side. Should anyone be driving, street parking in the area is available after 1.30pm on a Saturday.
