There is still time for you to conform your attendance at the dinner to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the last-day drama at Hereford and the final match at the Goldstone.

Former manager Steve Gritt, who led Albion to safety in that memorable 1996-97 season, will be guest of honour at this special event which takes place on Friday 22 April at the Amex.

They will be joined by a host of other Albion legends including former managers Chris Cattlin, Barry Lloyd, Alan Mullery and Dean Wilkins.

Several players spanning the last 50 years of the club’s history will be there including Russell Bromage, John Byrne, Ian Chapman, John Keeley, Steve Penney, Andy Rollings, John Templeman and Gary Williams as well as former chairman Dick Knight.
