Another chance to re-tread ‘Wembley Way’

ALBION fans can grab another chance to wallow in the memory of our 1968 FA Cup triumph in Smethwick late this month.

The Club’s recent 50th anniversary dinner proved a huge hit at The Hawthorns but for anyone who missed out on that event, another chance to re-tread the steps of one of Albion’s greatest teams is beckoning on June 23.

The Smethwick Heritage Centre Trust are staging a special event to celebrate the victory when visitors will have the chance to take part in two one-hour “Q and A” sessions with the man who lifted the trophy that day, captain Graham Williams.

He’ll be joined by two Smethwick-born team mates, Ray Fairfax and Lyndon Hughes, along with Mickey Fudge as they recall the Cup run and events that led to the 1-0 victory over Everton beneath the old twin towers.

The sessions go ahead between 11 and noon and then 1-2pm and will be chaired by the Trust’s resident historian Chris Sutton.  

The Trust is located in Smethwick's Victoria Park, next door to Smethwick Council House, and further details are available by calling them on 0121 555 7278. Alternatively, visit the Trust’s website or contact by email.
