Birmingham City's Former Players' Association held another hugely successful nostalgic event in conjunction with the club last week.

Over 200 guests packed into the Legends Lounge at St. Andrew's for 'Back to the 90s - part one', a look back at a memorable period for the football club that included the colourful Barry Fry era. 

And it was the lovable Fry who stole the show with an entertaining walk down memory lane at the end of the night that concluded with a rousing chorus of Keep Right On

Sponsored by Pure Cloud Solutions, the event was also well supported by a large number of former players including Liam Daish, Nigel Gleghorn and Mark Ward, who all took to the mic alongside compere Tom Ross.

A raffle and auction helped to raises almost £5,000 for the Former Players' Association and plans are already in place for 'Back to the 90s - part two' later this year. 

Reflecting on the night, Tom Ross, chairman of the Former Players' Association, said: "It was the best yet. We've held events looking back at the 60s, 70 and 80s and they were all brilliant but nothing tops the atmosphere from the recent 90s get together, especially with Barry Fry stealing the show.  

"It was an amazing night and I know all of the former players in attendance were humbled by the reception they received on the night.

"The event just goes to show the fantastic relationship the Former Players' Association has with the football club."
