Football Legends visit Richmond Nantwich

2 October 2011

Football legends Frank Blunstone and Jimmy Quinn, together with Jon Gold, Chairman of local club NantwichTown, appeared at Richmond Village Nantwich recently.

Ex England and Chelsea player Frank Blunstone plus Ex Northern Ireland international Jimmy Quinn, who now manages NantwichTown, captivated the audience who had already enjoyed a hot pot supper, as they recounted amusing anecdotes from their prestigous careers over the past years, including working with Tommy Docherty. Jon Gold then went on to give a fascinating potted history of NantwichTown whose original ground had been based at Jackson Avenue, only a very short distance away from the Village itself.

Village Advisor Nicola Tooke remarked " We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening, particularly the hilarious stories that were recounted for our amusement. We are also very grateful to Jon and NantwichTown for inviting our Residents to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere at NantwichTown's new ground whenever a home match is on."
