Ledley in the programme

Ledley King talks about his Champions League dream in tonight's official match programme against Young Boys.

It's a real collectors' item as this is our first-ever home programme in the Champions League and our first in the European Cup since the semi-final against Benfica back in 1962

Therefore it's quite apt that Ledley, our skipper and longest-serving player, is the main feature in the A4, 100-page publication.

"To see Champions League football here at the Lane is something I've been wanting to do for years," he said.

"I've watched the competition for years now and I've always wished that my club would be involved and I'd be playing a part. It's why tonight is such a fantastic evening.

"With the Champions League logo on your shirt and the competition music pumping around the stadium, it will be special.

"The lads have already said that when they were lining up for the first leg, once they heard the music it made them realise that they were at a different level.

"I still haven't experienced it yet, but I'm hoping to tonight and I'm really looking forward to doing so at the Lane."

Tonight's programme also features Harry Redknapp's exclusive column, Martin Chivers on his time in Switzerland, the views of Swiss great and Young Boys chief scout Stephane Chapuisat and double-winner Peter Baker's memories of our first European Cup tie against Gornik Zabrze in 1961.

We've also an in-depth feature of that first season in Europe, 1961-62 plus all the latest news, views and pictures from around the club.

Don't miss out on a slice of Champions League history - pick up your programme tonight!
