It was great to see members of our 1967 FA Cup winning side reunited at last Sunday’s game against Southampton.

Regular faces at the Lane such as Pat Jennings, Alan Mullery and Alan Gilzean were joined by fellow heroes of that Wembley triumph, including Joe Kinnear, Mike England and Jim Robertson.

Goals from Robertson and Frank Saul gave Bill Nicholson’s side a 2-1 victory over London rivals Chelsea on May 20, 1967 – the fifth time that we lifted the famous trophy.

The legendary group were introduced at half-time during our 2-1 win against the Saints – and all are hoping for a repeat Wembley success against the Blues when the current team take them on in next month’s FA Cup semi-final.
