Willie Comes to the Match

We were delighted and honoured to welcome former Stanley keeper Willie McInnes as our guest for the Cambridge United game.

Willie, who is aged 90 and still living locally, joined us on the pitch at half time to co duct both the clubs 50/50 draw and our Club 1968 draw.

He enjoyed meeting fans and reminiscing about his Peel Park playing days and was delighted that so many remembered his Stanley times.

He was kindly pictured enjoying a pint alongside his Hall of Fame image by Kipax and again at half time by Neil Broadhurst.

We are planning to bring in other fans’ favourites to conduct our future monthly Club1968 draws.
