PTG Legends v Wycombe Wanderers Legends - 11 July
Saturday, 9 July 2016 was all about the occasion not the result. On the day Penn & Tylers Green inaugurated the new pitch.
Club secretary Andreas Latta writes. "We are eternally grateful to former Wycombe Wanderers star Keith Scott for bringing the legendary FA Trophy winning side to French School Meadows for the official opening of our new pitch. It was fantastic to see Steve Guppy, Paul Hyde, Mark West, Keith Ryan, Steve Thompson, Matt Crossley, Keith Scott, to name but just a few, here in Penn for this important day in the calendar of our Football Club. It was also fantastic to see our own Penn & Tylers Green FC legends and the league winning side from last season."
"A big thank you also has to go to the match officials Frank Devine, Ian Bath and John Hurst. We must not forget all the supporters, sponsors and helpers who came to the match today ensuring that the entire event this afternoon was played in the right atmosphere."
"Chairman Tony Hurst and Keith Scott cut the ribbon just before kick-off and all the Penn & Tylers Green FC mascots and ball boys/girls from the junior sections provided a fitting surrounding. When the game finally got under way it started to sink in what actually has been achieved. Five years in planning with all the hurdles and “ups and downs” disappeared into the distance because of today. We got there in the end and we now have a fantastic pitch providing the community with a wonderful footballing facility."
"It was nice to hear so many complements today. This was greatly appreciated and we will not forget the support received today. Oh yes, there was a football match as well. Five goals, three were scored by the Wycombe Wanderers Legends (Keith Scott, Steve Thompson and Mo Harkin) and two were scored by the Penn & Tylers Green Legends (Adam Harman and Matt Miller)."
"Bradly Holland committed the first foul on the new pitch and Adam Harman scored the first goal on the new pitch. Keith Scott and Steve Guppy did what England could not do in France: Produce a fantastic cross and a brilliantly headed goal."
"Thank you everyone, it was a great day."
