Fa cup semi-final anniversary

40th Anniversary Event to Celebrate FA Cup Heroes

sync fixtures

Members of the Argyle team that reached the 1984 FA Cup semi-final will be honoured in a special anniversary event. 

Organised by Forever Green, the new initiative which honours all former Pilgrims, the event will occur exactly 40 years to the day that John Hore led out Argyle, a third division side at the time, onto the field at Villa Park. 

After a cup run that saw Argyle knock out Southend United, Barking, Newport County, Darlington, West Bromwich Albion and Derby County, the Pilgrims took on Watford on 14 April, 1984, losing 1-0 to a goal by George Reilly. 

Forty years on, to the very day, we will gather several members of the squad inside Club Argyle for a celebratory event which will include question-and-answer sessions with players and the formal induction of manager John Hore as a Forever Green ‘icon’. 

The event will also include a prize draw, a two-course hot-fork buffet, a special edition brochure that includes a reproduction of the match programme from the day, and a screening of the ‘Road to Villa Park’ DVD, as we acknowledge a squad that provided memories that will live with every Pilgrim that experienced one of the club’s finest achievements. 

Tickets are £50 + VAT for season-ticket holders, Evergreen members and Club Argyle members, and £55 + VAT for all other supporters. Doors open at 12.30pm, with the event beginning from 1pm. 

Tickets can be booked online here, by calling 01752 302206 or via email on hospitality@pafc.co.uk

All proceeds from the event will go into the Forever Green fund, which is to support all former players from our football club.
