CHANCE TO MEET FORMER BLUES

Posted on: Fri 23 Nov 2012

This Sunday, ahead of the Manchester City game, fans will have the opportunity to meet both John Dempsey (pictured) and Dave Beasant, who will be appearing in the Museum between 12.30-3pm, with tickets priced at £10.

Dempsey was part of the successful team of the early 1970s which won trophies both domestically and abroad.

In 1970 he featured in both games as the Blues overcame Leeds United following a replay to lift the FA Cup, while the following season, after an initial 1-1 draw, Dempsey scored one of our goals in the replay as we beat Real Madrid 2-1 to lift the European Cup Winners' Cup.

Beasant, meanwhile, after signing for the Blues in 1989, made over 100 appearances for the club, and was our goalkeeper during the 1989/90 Zenith Data Systems Cup final when we beat Middlesbrough 1-0 at Wembley to secure the trophy.

Tickets for this events are available online, or over the telephone on 0871 984 1955.
