The London Broncos Supporters Association (LBSA) will be playing a key role in celebrating both 35 years of the Club in London, and 120 years of our game. The Broncos have designated the fixture against Hunslet Hawks on Sunday July 21st as Heritage Day, and the celebrations will be centred around the LBSA Heritage activities.
“We had an excellent launch of our Hall of Fame at the Wigan Warriors fixture last year, and so we will be inducting a further member of our Hall of Fame at the Heritage Day” said Association Secretary Steve Newcombe. “Along with the Broncos we’re keen to make this a great day for fans old and new, and we hope to involve former players from the Fulham days on in our celebration”
The original Hall of Fame members are Reg Bowden; Hussein M’Barki; Scott Roskell; Mark Johnson; Peter Gill; Steele Retchless; and Robert Purdham. “The new Hall of Famer we’re planning to induct has also played a significant role in our Club’s story” added Newcombe.
Tom Williams from the Broncos was instrumental in ensuring that the Supporters are again involved in the Club’s celebrations.“The Supporters’ Association Hall of Fame induction last year was a big part in making that day what it was, and we’re happy to be working with them again this year. Whilst we continue to look forward to regaining our Super League status as soon as possible, its also important to look back at the great players that have graced our Club over the last thirty-five years.”
Full details of the day will be released by London Broncos in the coming weeks. Attend London Broncos matchday hospitality at the game and be first to hear details of the new Hall of Fame member.
