Podge 66
Sports Podge 2016

Sports Podge celebrates its 11th anniversary this year and this year’s theme is particularly close to my heart.

I was sixteen when GB hosted the world cup in the UK and Bobby & Nobby played for my local team alongside Georgie Best, Denis Law & Co. Sir Alf Ramsey somehow put together and led an amazing line up of men to go to battle with some of the best players on the planet. When Bobby Moore held up that trophy at the end of the tournament it brought tears to our eyes and an amazing sense of pride.

As freinds of the Bobby Moore Fund, this year was a celebration of the 50th anniversary of Bobby Moore holding up the World Cup for England at Wembley Stadium. Cerys Matthews MBE took us back to 1966 with a medley of songs from 66 and a special duet of we're forever blowing bubbles with Bobby Barnes, whilst John Motson did an outstanding job taking us back to the era and also some history on the charity shield which was on display in the room.

As usual we had a fantastic line up on the day. You can view the guest list and theme for the day, courtesy of Cubo, here.
