Rocky Rocastle Day

Rocky Rocastle Day

Saturday's visit from Aston Villa see's the Highbury faithful celebrate the life of David 'Rocky' Rocastle.

Rocky was taken from us at the tender age of 33 in 2001 and as the club enter's it's final months at the famous Highbury stadium, the board have seen fit to have a special theme for every home game this season, tomorrow is 'Rocky Rocastle Day'

A number of special activities will be taking place tomorrow such as, a period of applause for the great man, a ballon release where ballons will be available to buy on the day for supporters to attach a message to and let free at the appropriate time. Special guests and a visual tribute will be played on the massive screens.

Also, 50p from each match day programme will go to the David Rocastle trust, as will all other fund raising events.

Buckets will also be passed round to raise money for the charity.

So all fans attending the game tomorrow should bring an extra few quid to give to a good cause and to honour David Rocastle.

Good luck with your cause. I remember Rocky during his brief spell with us (Chelsea) and he was, on his day, class.
