Three of Nottingham’s most historic football families will be coming together to celebrate the induction of Nottingham Forest and Notts County into the National Football Museum Hall of Fame.
Members of Nottingham football’s royalty from the Clough, Taylor and Sirrel family will all be in attendance to share a special evening for football in Nottingham.
Brian Clough’s son Simon will join Peter Taylor’s daughter Wendy and son Philip alongside Jimmy Sirrel’s offspring David and Audrey at the gala event at the Motorpoint Arena on November 3rd.
Simon Clough, who was a young boy when his father lifted the European Cup, said: “These Nottingham Forest legends deserve to share the Hall of Fame with football’s elite and we are looking forward to a night to remember for football across Nottingham.”
Taylor’s daughter, Wendy, commented: “It is set to be another special night for the historic team of our past and we are delighted to be sharing the moment with them.
“My father was immensely proud of the achievement of this team and it is fantastic to see them honoured in this way.”
David Sirrel added: “Notts County has been at the heart of our family for generations and to be present on the night the club gets inducted into the Hall of Fame will be a night to remember.”
Footballing heroes from the past and present will join together on November 3rd from 7 to 9pm at the Motorpoint Arena as the Nottingham Forest European Cup-winning squads and the oldest professional football club in the world, Notts County, take their rightful place amongst the world’s football elite.
Over 1,600 football fans and enthusiasts are expected to attend the gala event, which is hosted by Nottingham City Council, and celebrate Nottingham’s status as the City of Football.
Fans will get the chance to meet the stars from past and present as they share their favourite goals and moments from Nottingham’s rich footballing history as well as looking forward to the future of football in the city and the achievements of the Nottingham City of Football project.
